My mother in law got this recipe from a fire man. It is one of their favorites in the fire house, now it is one of ours. Serve with Flour tortillas, rice, and a sprinkling of cheese, if desired.

This recipe was a huge hit! I made it for my husband and parents around the holidays. Our grocery has a limited offering in the way of chilis, so I substituted with jalapenos, and it worked fine. While it made a lot, it was perfect to serve four people and have leftovers for lunch during the week. I've been recommending the recipe to all my co-workers who enjoy cooking.

followed the recipe but for some reason came out extremly watery, drained some of the liquid off and added a can of tomato sauce, was able to salvage the meat, will not make again

This is the best most authentic Chile Colorado I've ever had, it doesn't get any better than this. I have people begging me to make this at least once a month. Thank you so much for sharing!
