aka Green Chile Stew

Because the pork isn’t browned first but simmered to make a rich broth, this version of green chile stew resembles posole. A variety of peppers add complex flavor and heat. The stew is tasty on its own or with white rice, warm corn tortillas or cheese or pork enchiladas. Like most stews, it’s even better the next day.


  • 1 pound boneless pork shoulder cut into ½-inch chunks
  • ½ pound ground pork
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 teaspoon chopped garlic
  • 1 teaspoon ground white pepper
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano, preferably Mexican
  • 3 1/2 cups water
  • 4 roasted, peeled and seeded green chile peppers, medium dice (see chiles rellenos recipe) or six canned whole green chile peppers, medium dice
  • 1 green bell pepper, seeded, medium dice
  • 1 poblano pepper, seeded, medium dice
  • 1 jalapeno pepper, seeded, medium dice
  • 1 banana pepper, seeded, medium dice
  • ½ cup medium diced yellow onion
  • ½ cup medium diced russet potato


  1. In a large stew pot over high heat, add pork chunks, ground pork, salt, garlic, white pepper, cumin, oregano and water.
  2. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, cover and simmer 30 to 45 minutes until pork chunks start to soften.
  3. Add green chile, green bell, poblano, jalapeno and banana peppers, onion and potato and continue to simmer 30 to 45 minutes, until vegetables soften, pork starts to fall apart and stew thickens.
  4. Add salt and pepper to taste.
