My Husband's FAVORITE Green Chili Stew!!
My husband is your typical "meat and potatoes" kind of guy.. If you make something that has HUGE chunks of veggies in it, you'll see him sit there and pick out every chunky piece before he even touches his food or not even touch it at all!!
Beef stew is one of my favorites growing up. I always said my grandpa makes the best stew ever, i still believe til' this very day that it's the best!! I was talking with my mom one day last year and asked her what i could do to a beef stew that Peter (my husband) won't sit there and pick out everything but the meat and potatoes.. She told me she use to make this green chile stew all the time along time ago. it had meat, potatoes, the onions disappear while cooking, it had corn, the tomatoes were chopped small enough, and it had chile. ALL THE THINGS HE LIKES!! is what came to my mind.. So I scribbled down the recipe as she was telling me the recipe.. and gave it a shot!! I had his family over when I made it that night. Everyone loved it, including Peter.. He was mad when he went for his 3rd!! serving, it was gone. so i have to double the recipe now.
This is my doubled version..
