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

MY REVIEW
Reviewed May. 13, 2013

"I liked this stew but next time I wouldn't use the third can of corn. There was more corn than anything else! I also added an onion and a clove of garlic for some added flavor."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Dec. 31, 2012

"This Texan family HAD to add a bit of heat and Mexican flavor to this already fabulous stew! We added cilantro!!! Yes...that makes a huge difference and adds that tex-mex flavor we all know and love from here! We also added some red pepper flakes for some spice...cause we like things spicy! I prefer homemade tortillas (from Kroger) to eat with it, but my Alabama husband prefers cornbread...which he put at the bottom of his bowl before pouring this over it. It's certainly going to need salt. BUT...it's fabulous and even my mom, who had never heard of a pork stew, was impressed! YES...we will make this again!"
