During the Labour Day weekend in New Mexico it's traditional to make a dish using Hatch Chilies. Hatch New Mexico is the prime growing area for chilies in the US. I chose to make this stew because it incorporates a lot of delicious ingredients. You can add more vegetables to this if you have some favourites, be adventuresome. I was even lucky enough to find some Green Chili Wine and added it to the stew. This is comfort food south western style...OLE!
