Doris McGuire found other recipes for green chili stew to be too bland, so she created this version at her home in Grants Pass, Oregon. "It makes a great dinner served with corn bread sticks and a simple salad," she writes.


  • 3/4 pound boneless pork roast, cut into 1-inch cubes
  • 1 tablespoon canola oil
  • 1/4 cup chopped green pepper
  • 1/4 cup chopped onion
  • 1/4 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 1/4 cup dry red wine or beef broth
  • 1 cup canned diced tomatoes, undrained
  • 1/2 cup salsa
  • 2 tablespoons canned chopped green chilies, divided
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/4 teaspoon sugar
  • Dash ground cloves
  • 2 tablespoons minced fresh parsley
  • 1 small jalapeno pepper, seeded and chopped


  1. In a large saucepan, cook the pork in oil over medium heat until no longer pink; remove and set aside. In the same pan, saute the green pepper, onion and garlic for 1-2 minutes or until tender. Stir in the pork, wine or broth, tomatoes, salsa, 1 tablespoon chilies, cumin, sugar and cloves. Cover and cook over low heat for 40 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  2. Stir in the parsley, jalapeno and remaining chilies. Cover and cook 20-25 minutes longer or until meat is tender.
