Slow Cooker New Mexican Green Chile Stew

This recipe is a request from my mom, but you don’t have to twist my arm to make Green Chile Stew! I grew up in Las Cruces, NM which isn’t far from Hatch, NM, the Green Chile capitol of the world. I actually never ate it until college, as both my parents are from California, so never made it, but once I tried it, I was hooked. I actually have chile shipped up to me frozen from NM, or my friend Kara will send me home with some when I come to visit, as the canned stuff just isn’t the same. But Trader Joe’s does have canned Hatch green chile, so that will certainly work if that is what you can get your hands on. It is Paleo, low carb, and delicious : )

Ingredients:

1.5 to 2 pounds of beef, chicken or pork in 1 inch cubes

2 cups of chicken broth

2 tsp. crushed garlic

1 onion medium chopped

2 tsp cumin

1 tsp garlic salt

1 Tbsp Coconut Aminos (or you can sub with soy or tamari sauce)

1 pound of fresh roasted, peeled, and chopped green chile  plus one small can of green chile. I would use 4-6 little cans if you don’t have any fresh

1 14 ounce can of Organic fire roasted tomatoes

Sea Salt and Pepper

1 jar of yellow and red roasted peppers (you can get these at Trader Joe’s, or just find red roasted red peppers)

Avocado, and Organic Sour Cream and Cheese for garnish (optional)

Directions:

Into Crock Pot, throw meat (not cooked), onion, garlic, chicken broth, garlic salt, cumin, tomatoes, green chile, coconut aminos, and then add salt and pepper, as much as you normally like in a stew and then stir

Cook all day on low, or high for about 4 hours

As soon as you get home, slice up roasted peppers and add to pot, let those warm up in stew for about a half hour

Serve with avocado, sour cream and cheese if desired, trust me, you won’t miss the potatoes!

Tomorrow’s post will be Chili Dogs on Sweet Potato buns, stay tuned!

Thanks for the great recipes! It is my new favorite chili. I cooked it the otherwise night and people were fighting over the leftovers. You are right…I did not miss the potatoes. Keep the recipes coming!

    Glad you liked it Mom! I added the roasted peppers on a whim but I think they really completed it!

Amy! I’m making this tonight!! Super excited! Am I supposed to add water?? My whole menu this week if from your recipes, thanks:).

    Hey Jodi! You shouldn’t need to use any water, the chicken broth should be enough, but if you want to thin it all just add a little extra broth. Let me know how it turns out! : )

      Ok thanks!! I didn’t add anything! I added a little soy sauce instead of kitchen bouquet, it was so amazing!! Great stew recipe, my fam loved it:)

Hi I have been looking for a low carb version of chili! I live in P-town and I love chili and sometimes I end up jumping off the wagon just so that I can get some 🙁 I will try this recipe… I have tried everything from using xantham gum to thicken (slimefest) to using sour cream (ick) I will try this this weekend… Have you tried this over burritos or anything like that?

    Hope it turned out well Elise. I wouldn’t say this is super thick, but it is tasty. I don’t eat tortillas so no on the burritos : )

I found a decent lower carb tortilla. Ends up 4 net carbs, so okay for once in a while
