Family Recipe – Green Chili

green chili

The best green chili is here in print, something that has been hard to obtain even though the recipe has been in the family for generations. In fact, I was flipping through our family recipe book and this one is not in there!
Being 5th generation Coloradoans we have a rich tradition of food and family.  Try this recipe and enjoy the flavors of Colorado and New Mexico cuisines.

1 lb. of cubed pork

1 tsp of garlic powder/ 1 crushed clove

3 tbsp. of flour

1 can of Rotel with green chilis

1 1/2 cups of diced green chilis

1 1/2 tsp. salt

2 tsp.  garlic salt

1/2 cup onion

6 cups of chicken broth

In a sauce pan, heat 1 TBSP of oil then add pork (I prefer tenderloin, some prefer fattier pieces) add garlic.  After pork is cooked add flour, stir and cook until the flour is brown, I remember my Grandma always saying the browning is the most important part.  Blend Rotel (a new twist to the family recipes, saves time!), water, onions and green chilis in a blender.  Add to pan of browned flour, add salt, garlic salt and simmer for at least an hour, add water to desired thickness.  Also, delicious the next day too!  Serve with tortillas, beans, cheese or over a tostada or burrito.

Very yummy! Thanks! I ate it for lunch and dinner.

Mrs. O says:

It can be frozen, just be sure to cool completely. Store in a Freezer Ziploc.

Can it be frozen? I am gonna make a batch tomorrow and if it comes out right, I am hoping to make batches to freeze.

Mrs. O says:

You should totally try it is yummy, yummy. You can use it over breakfast for Huevos Rancheros, put it in or on top of a burrito, use it like salsa with chips or on a taco. I would love to hear back if you make it. Remember, browning the flour is the most important part, can’t be too dark or too light.

This is a great recipe. I add oregano to mine. If you like a lot of meat you can add more. This recipe can be adjusted to your taste depending on whether you want it hotter or milder. You can use canned jalepenos if you want it hotter. We buy the chili by the bushel in Colorado. So if you don’t have access to fresh chilis, you can use the canned chilis as well.
