Tasty Tuesday: Green chili stew
We have a recipe for chili verde. It calls for pork, lots of ingredients and plenty of time. It's delicious. But today I'm sharing something with you that is much faster and just as tasty.
The other day, we spotted Cookwell & Company Green Chili Stew on the shelf. The directions are to brown meat of choice, add the contents of the jar and warm through. It was around the 8 dollar mark which is a little hefty for an impulse buy, but if you add in a pound of meat, 13 dollars for a home cooked meal is pretty good. And the fact that it brings dinner together so quickly is a bonus, too. By the time it takes us to decide where to eat, this could be ready!
I happened to use a feugo baked chicken breast, cooled and cubed. I dumped it with the chili mix into the crockpot for a few hours on low. It was wonderful. Very green tasting, not a lot of preservatives and just the right amount of heat. Joel had his with corn tortillas. Hannah tried it but found it a bit too spicy. For the carb counters out there, it measures 7 net carbs per half cup of mix.
