  1. Set oven rack about 6 inches from the heat source and preheat the oven's broiler. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil. Place peppers with cut sides down onto the prepared baking sheet.
  2. Cook under the preheated broiler until the skin of the peppers has blackened and blistered, 5 to 8 minutes. Place blackened peppers into a bowl and cover tightly with plastic wrap. Allow peppers to steam as they cool, about 20 minutes. Remove and discard skins; chop peppers into smaller pieces.
  3. Place cubed pork in a resealable plastic bag; coat with flour, 2 tablespoons salt, and 2 tablespoons pepper. Heat oil in a skillet over medium heat. Cook pork in the hot oil until browned, 5 to 7 minutes. Transfer to a slow cooker set to High.
  4. Add the Hatch chiles, remaining salt and pepper, chicken stock, diced tomatoes with peppers, onion, cumin, and garlic to the slow cooker. Mix and cover. Cook on High until pork is tender and flavors blend, about 4 hours.

I was so excited to find this recipe! I grew up eating this chili and have been making it myself for decades! In a pinch, you can substitute a 28oz can of diced green chillies; it won't have the...

I perfected my version of this about 30 years ago and it has won many chili cook-off prizes. Flouring the meat before browning it adds all the thickening we need to make it stew rather than sou...

This was delicious. I made a few changes, I decreased the salt & pepper. My slowcooker, seems to cook a little hot, so I cooked this on low 5 hours. I cubed the pork large about 3 inches, so it ...
