Green Chili Pork Stew Recipe

Green Chili Pork Stew Recipe

Meet the Cook: Green chilies are a big favorite here in the Southwest - my family likes anything with them in it. Now that we are "empty nesters" (two married children and two grandchildren), my husband knows that I'm going to spring at least one new recipe on him each week. He's always brave! -Pat Henderson, Deer Park, Texas
