In the Kitchen

I promised to share my daughter-in-law Miranda's recipe for Green Chili, which is by far the best I've ever tasted! And doesn't it look pretty?

Miranda's Green Chili

3 lbs. pork, cubed
Four 7-ounce cans green chilies
1 7-ounce can diced jalapenos
2 14-ounce cans diced tomatoes
6 tomatoes, diced
2 white onions, diced
1 ½ tsp. salt
1 tsp. pepper
1 Tbs. oregano
2 Tbs. dry mustard
1 Tbs. garlic powder
2 boxes (8 cups) of chicken broth

1 cup flour
3 sticks butter

In a large stock pot, saute pork with a little bit of butter until browned, about 3 minutes. Add onion and cook until pork is done.

Add spices, cook for 5 minutes.

Add tomatoes, green chilies and jalapenos.  Cook 5 more minutes.

Add broth, bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer about half an hour.

In separate pan, melt 3 sticks of butter. Add cup of flour, combine them into a thick paste (a roux). Add paste to the green chili and remove from heat.

Serve with tortillas, cheese and sour cream.

Just printed this out, sounds perfect for a rainy day. I'm thinking about ground pork as I'm weird in that I don't like chunks of meat. That should work just as well, don't you think?

Thank you for passing this on, and I wish you a good weekend ahead,
