Green Chili Stew Recipe

Anaheim chilies are the top crop in New Mexico. I roast them to use in a variety of dishes. Peppers give this down-home stew a wonderful rich flavor my family loves.—Mary Spill, Tierra Amarilla, New Mexico

"I'd give it a 2 as it's written. I made it just as the recipe stated except I didn't have coriander. I found that there wasn't enough liquid in the recipe. I put the potatoes in last and they sat on top of other ingredients and didn't even get wet. I added 3 cups of beef broth and simmered it. Once it was finished I decided not to serve it until the next day (soup is better the second day anyway). When I heated it up on day 2, it was on the bland side and still needed more liquid. I added 2 more cups of beef broth and 2 teaspoons cumin. That did the trick. I'd rate it a 4 with the changes. I did use roasted Anaheim peppers so maybe my peppers weren't flavorful enough."
