Green Chili Stew

Green Chili Stew is one of my all time favorites.   I never tire of it.  Maybe it is the green chili  that we love so much here in New Mexico.  This stew is a  combination of ground beef, potatoes, green chili, tomatoes, and spices.  All of these ingredients are simmered together to create a delicious and satisfying stew.   Serve with a flour tortilla and you have a satisfying meal. 

Green Chili Stew

1 tablespoon vegetable oil
1 pound ground beef
1 packet (1-ounce) taco seasoning
3 garlic cloves, minced
4 cups beef broth
1 (14.5 ounce) crushed tomatoes
1 cup diced green chilies
2 cups peeled potatoes, diced
2  teaspoons ground cumin
2  teaspoons dried Mexican oregano
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper

1.  In a Dutch Oven heat the oil and add the  ground beef.  As the beef is browning, break it up into small pieces. When beef is cooked remove to a plate lined with a paper towel.  Wipe out Dutch oven and place meat back in the Dutch Oven.  Sprinkle the taco seasoning over the ground beef and stir until the meat is covered.
2. Add the remaining ingredients to the Dutch Oven and stir to combine.  Bring to boil.   Cover and reduce heat.  Simmer for 45 minutes.
3. Taste and re season if  necessary.  Serve.

Serves 6-8



  1. It sounds great to me. I've only recently used green chilies in cooking, not something you see around here very often in Chicago burbs. I'd love a bowl but know no one else here would. Too bad.

  2. So very warming and tasty...perfect for cold winter days!

  3. Green chiles are so fabulous -- you are lucky to live in New Mexico! (Also because it's so beautiful there!)

    Have a great Christmas and New Year.
