This is my slow cooker version of a green chile stew from New Mexico. It is great to serve with tortillas, tortilla chips, green onions, and sour cream.

This is a STEW! Why would you want to use an expensive cut of meat like a beef tenderloin in a crock pot. OMG! I live in Albuquerque, born and raised and any lesser cut would work just fine! We never put beef in our Green Chile Stew just pork! Do use the masa, it adds depth to the stew and remember if you are not from around this part of the country that if you have fresh green chili that you need to roast it first. There are several ways to do it: You can put it on a pan and broil it, turning it when each side gets black and blistered. You can put it on your outside grill, or my preferred method for just a few chilis at a time, I roast them on the top of my gas range. After blistering the skin, put them into a large resealable bag and let them steam for about 15 minutes then peel off the charred outer skin. To tell if your chili is hot, look at the stem end. The more points it has, the hotter it is. If you don't want you chili hot remove the stems and seeds. Enjoy! Read More

Not authentic try Chile Verde II from this site. This is the real thing. Top with fresh cilantro and a squeeze of lime. We make this in huge batches and then freeze it. YUMMY stuff Read More

We New Mexicans are VERY protective of our cooking heritage! It takes a lot to impress us. As "Valencia" said, nice but not authentic. Grew up in Albuquerque's north valley. Read More

We loved this recipe and although we did change some things we feel it would be worth 5 stars as written. What I did differently was I left out the beef and doubled the pork (we didn't have any beef on hand) I substituted whole wheat flour for the masa harina used sweet yellow onions instead of red (my husband's preference) and coriander instead of cilantro. One thing I did also was substitute a rutabega for the potato in order to cut the carbohydrate count considerably (we try to watch our starches when we can). This was so wonderful and even though it may seem like a lot of prep at first glance was quite easy. We served it to guests on Halloween and they all loved it! Read More

This is very tasty as written but having grown up in NM agree it's not quite authentic. Stick with pork don't waste beef tenderloin in this replace the cumin with chile powder or ancho chile powder. Cumin has NO place in authentic NM food. The masa adds a unique flavor that wheat flour cannot duplicate; don't make that substitution. Most of all enjoy this tasty NM dish! Read More

Very good and comforting for a cold day. I used leftover grilled pork loin & no beef. Pretty much followed recipe except no masa as we wanted it brothy. Served with sour cream and cheese on top with fresh flour tortillas. Read More
