I have been wanting to make some green chili for a while. I used to make it regularly when we lived in Colorado and grew chilies in our garden. We live in a townhouse now, and don't have a vegetable garden; therefore, I had to visit a local farmer's market to purchase the chili peppers. Mostly pablano peppers with a couple of jalapenos and a hot banana pepper.

First thing I did was char the peppers and then put them a bowl covered with cling wrap to allow me to easily remove the skins.

The rest of the ingredients included some cubed up pork stew meat, the last of the panchetta that I used in the last challenge cook, a can of fire roasted tomatoes, one box of chicken stock, and a whole white onion.

The peppers were diced up to add to the stew.

Next I added the panchetta to the dutch oven to start to render its fat. There was not enough fat, so I had to add some extra virgin olive oil. I then added the pork and the onion to get some browning on the pork.

Ready for the rest of the ingredients.

Here it is ready to take off the grill and serve.

And here is a nice big bowl along with a whole wheat tortilla to dip in it.

I cooked enough that I was able to get three meals out of it. It got spicier the longer that it sat in the refrigerator. I also took some over to my neighbor.

That looks delicious, the roasted peppers added tons of flavor I am sure.

The roasted peppers did add a ton of flavor. I chose the peppers that I did because Mrs. GG did not want it too spicy. In Colorado, I used what ever peppers were in the garden and ready to be picked. That led to some spicy chili.

That looks great - and is now on my list if I can ever find those kind of peppers here in the UK.

 

Maybe I'll just grow my own next year....

 

Have you checked out the Chillichump YouTube channel? he is in the UK and grows a lot of peppers. You don't have to use the exact peppers that I did.

I have not, but I will do.

 

I've grown a lot of peppers over the years, but never any Poblanos, so might give that a go.

That looks very tasty!  I haven't made Green Chili in a couple years, I may need to break out my recipe since the weather is getting colder.

I don't have a recipe for either red (chili con carne) or green chili. I just have a general list of ingredients, but the specific ingredients, as well as spices will vary. I've never made any that I didn't like; however, Mrs. GG has said that I get it too spicy at times.

Growing up in Southern Colorado, for me I'm not sure there is such a thing as too spicy when it comes to green chili!  My recipe is from my mother, and after moving twice I'm not sure if I still have it.  Guess I need to ask for it next time I talk to her.

If you are willing to share her recipe I would be interested. I am always looking for new ideas to do things.
