Green Chili

This is the best chili I've ever had. It was handed down to me by mother, who learned it from her mother. We enjoy it with crackers or a pan of corn bread.—Gloria Rhinehart, Albuquerque, New Mexico

    I personally would call it more of a soup than a chili but it was still really good. It was very easy to make using ingredients I always have on hand. Would definitely make it again. The longer it simmers, the better it tastes. Be careful not to get your potatoes too mushy though. I'm a "pepper" girl so I added some black pepper to it too.

    Green chile needs garlic. This would be so much better slow cooked all day to better mingle the flavors.

    Pretty bland until I added another can of chilies, some garlic powder and pepper. Easy to assemble..Will definately make it again.
