chile is my nectar


D
id you know that I could probably eat chile every day for the rest of my life and still react like it was the best thing I have ever tasted? Well I could! Red chile, green chile, red and green chile, green and red chile - you can see that the possibilities and combinations are endless.



Basic green chile stew is easy to put together. Brown some meat, add some onions, add roasted, peeled and chopped green chile and garlic, salt and pepper to taste, a little mexican oregano and add broth. You can add cube potatoes and mushrooms if you want to make it super deluxe.



This simmers for a while until it smells so good you cant resist it any longer.



I like it simply poured over a warmed tortilla that is filled with cheese and rolled. I could eat a few of these little cheesy bites, want to kick it to the moon - top it with an over easy egg!

Fly me to the moon - an over-easy egg over a warm, cheese-filled, chile stew-drenched tortilla would send me over the top!

Mmmm, chili.

Mmmm...Good thing I've begun to love chilies over the past couple of years. I missed so much tasty goodness when I *used* to avoid them.

Vickie said...

Great post! That chili looks amazing and I love the guideline. You know, chili is the first free-form dish I ever made when I was a teenager. I could just taste what I wanted to make. mmm

I've never had green chile stew before and this looks delicious! This makes me miss living in California with its abundance of cheap Mexican food.
