“My sister-in-law from New Mexico made this for us over the holidays. Very delicious and satisfying - especially with home-made tortillas!”

  1. Heat oil in a large stockpot over medium-high heat. Crumble beef into pot and cook, stirring frequently, until well-browned. Drain excess fat, and return to the stove.
  2. Add potatoes, stewed tomatoes, green chilies, onion, and water to the pot with the beef, and stir to combine. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, and simmer 1 hour to blend flavors. Season to taste with salt and pepper, and serve.

i'm from new mexico and i would definitely use beef stew meat, ground pork, or other pork meat instead of ground beef. it's ok with ground beef, i use it sometimes, but i prefer the others instead... you may need to cook it longer for the stew meat to really soften. i would also add a little cumin.



My Grandma and Grandpa were the masters of this dish. It's definitely a comfort food. The proportions in the recipe are good, but I go through the whole process of roasting and peeling green chile when I make it. I cook the onion along with the beef and drain. We like ours with more liquid, so I always add beef broth. In addition, the posted recipe didn't use garlic, but it is a must have. Green chiles without garlic is like pizza without cheeze. It's a great base to tweak to your own liking. Also, it's really inexpensive.

I thought this was very good and filling. I didn't have an onion, so I substituted onion powder. I used homemade green verde sauce instead of green chili peppers. It was good, but I thought it could have used a little something else.
