I grew up in Colorado but really didn’t start appreciating Green Chile until I got older. One thing I LOVE about it, is how EASY it is to make.  It’s literally FIVE ingredients and a one pot meal.  The one thing you have to be careful of is the heat.  I find buying the chiles canned or in the freezer section helps me to get the most consistent heat.  That being said, I LOVE to go out every September to the roasting stands & pick a bushel up. It just seems right and more back to the way it should be. I will process all my chiles ahead of time & freeze them in one cup portions to use throughout the year.  If you want to know how to do that, click here.


The other thing I love about Green Chile is it’s a great place to use leftover chicken.  I know traditional green chile is made with pork but I don’t think pork is very clean so I tend to make it with ground beef, turkey or leftover chicken. 

1 lb Organic Ground Meat of your choice OR leftover chicken

1 cup Green Chiles – Diced or processed

2 clove Garlic – Diced

2 Cans Organic Stewed Tomatoes

32 ounces Organic Bone Broth or Chicken Stock

Salt to Taste


Toppings (Optional):

Diced Avocados


Diced Red or Green Onions


1.      If using ground meat, brown your meat in a pot

2.     Add the Garlic, Tomatoes, Green Chiles & Broth

3.     Simmer for about 5 minutes & add salt to taste

4.     While it’s simmering, chop up your toppings.

5.     Simmer for another 10 minutes and serve.

6.     Enjoy!!  That was almost too easy.
