The days are getting shorter, and the temperatures are getting cooler here in New Mexico. One of my favorite thins about fall here is the colors the spring up (or fall down) this time of year. Another favorite thing is the good comfort food that fall ushers in. I came up with this recipe for New Mexico Green Chile Chili, and I make it a lot during the cold months. I hope you like it as much as Dr. T and I do. It’s super easy and ohhh soooo good.
|I’ve been investing in good quality pots and pans. My son and daughter-in-law gave me this dutch oven to add to my La Creuset pieces. It can be found here:|
I had limited groceries the other day and didn’t feel like going to the grocery store! A terrible problem that I know all of you can relate to. I looked at what I had and came up with this easy recipe so I thought I’d share!! I call it New Mexico Green Chile Chili ( I still have my Texas roots. A big bowl a chili cures so many ills!!!)
I realize that in Texas, true chili doesn’t have beans. But remember, this is New Mexico Chili so I can add beans!!!
Here is what you need for Green Chile Chile:
4 easy ingredients
1 to 1&1/2 Pounds of Hamburger Meat
1/2 – 1 Cup of Green Chilis
1 Can of flavored beans (my favorite come from a great grocery store in Texas call HEB)
1 large baking potato
In a large pan, cook hamburger. While hamburger is cooking, you can put the potato in the microwave so that it doesn’t take as long to cook in the chili. (You can decide if you need to do this by your time frame– and how hungry your family is!!)
Once the hamburger is cooked completely, drain. I also always rinse mine. Add beans and green chiles. For this dish, I don’t drain the beans. The potatoes will soak up some of this flavor. Add as much green chile as you can stand. It adds such a great flavor to this dish.
You must use authentic New Mexico chiles!!! Here is a link to the ones I used. Green Chiles.
Cut the potato into cubes and add them to the mixture. Let it sit for a few minutes or up until the potatoes have cooked and are tender.
Serve your family and enjoy!! It’s so easy, and the flavors are great!!!
As always, if you like what I share, please your social media!! I appreciate all the kinds words from those of you that I hear from!!
appeared last year after a trip to Trader Joes. I found some great fall favorites. I haven’t been able to go to Trader Joes recently, but I hope they have all of the items I found last year. They are all delicious. You can read that post HERE.
