Old Fashioned Colorado Green Chili
This is a flavorful, simple recipe that can easily be modified to suit your taste.
2 lbs. cubed pork
1 tbsp. minced garlic (about 2 cloves)
1/4 tsp pepper
3 tbsp. flour
2 cups diced fresh tomatoes (you can substitute 1 14 oz can)
1 14.5 oz can chicken broth
1 cup water
2 ½ cups diced green chiles (about 20 chiles)
2 cups diced onion.
Salt & pepper to taste.
Brown pork in skillet with garlic and pepper. Add flour and brown as well.
In crock pot, mix pork, garlic, tomatoes, water, green chiles and onion. Simmer for at least 2 hours. Water can be added to thin down and flour can be added to thicken.
(You can also cook it in a large pot on the stove at low heat.)
Hint: Let simmer at least an hour before tasting and modifying by adding chiles, more tomatoes, garlic, etc.
This is a very meaty, very slightly thickened chili – thin for Colorado style chili. If you like really thick chili, use 4-5 tbsp. flour rather than 3 and/or reduce the water.
Makes approximately 3 quarts. Serves 8-10.
