New Mexico-style Green Chile Stew (Gluten-Free)

One of the best things I ever ate was the green-chile stew I had at a restaurant in Taos, New Mexico the name of which I don't remember. Still the stew of local, fresh roasted green chiles, squash, corn and pork stays in my mind to this day.

Anyone who has ever spent time in New Mexico can likely attest to the New Mexicans' love affair with the green chile. Anyone who's tried the fresh, green chile stew has likely thought about having more one day. They make green chile stew all over New Mexico, and they make it many different ways, but it always comes out delicious.

If you can't get fresh roasted green chiles, then try to find frozen diced chiles at your local market. This recipe makes enough to serve eight people.

Ingredients:
3 tablespoons olive oil
2 pounds cubed pork stew meat
1½ large yellow onion, diced
5 cloves garlic, minced
3 cups chopped, roasted green chiles
1 can diced tomatoes with juice (14.5 ounces)
2 yellow squash, cut in one-inch cubes
1 cup fresh steamed, or frozen corn kernels
1 can pinto beans, drained (16 ounces)
1½ cups tomatillo salsa
6 cups chicken broth
1 teaspoon dried oregano
½ teaspoon chili powder
½ teaspoon paprika
¼ teaspoon ground clove
salt and pepper to taste

Directions:
Heat the olive oil in a large soup pot over medium-high heat. Season the pork with salt, pepper, paprika and chile powder, and add to pot. Cook until well-browned on all sides.

Remove browned pork and set aside. Lower heat to medium, and stir in the onion, garlic and squash. Cook and stir until the onion is soft and clear.

Return the pork to the pot, and stir in the green chiles, corn, diced tomatoes with juice, tomatillo salsa, and chicken broth. Add oregano and ground clove.

Raise heat to medium-high, and quickly bring a boil, then reduce heat to low, cover, and simmer 30 minutes.

After 30 minutes, spoon off 2 cups of the soup, making certain it contains NO pork pieces, and pour into a blender.

Hold down the lid of the blender with a folded kitchen towel, and carefully start the blender, using a few quick pulses to get the soup moving before leaving it on to puree. Puree until smooth, then pour back into the cooking pot.

This is a good way to thicken the stew and eliminate some of the chunkier pieces.

Continue to simmer at least 30 minutes to one hour more, stirring occasionally, until the pork is very tender.

Serve with rice, beans and corn tortillas.

Nice flavors, good balance, a little too over the top for a basic dish....

I just experienced the best New Mexico Green Chile Stew at The Bent Street Cafe in Taos, NM. Looking forward to creating your shared recipe. I seriously could have had that lunch everyday.

Yep. Initially I had the full panel. DGP was the only positive and it's the only one my doctor orders now.

Well I wish mine was dia. earlier, I got all kinds of other food issues, and other auto immune disease that came up as complications. If you deal with and change over now you can prevent a even more limited diet. I was running a bucket list thinking I was going to die before my dia. I had slight ...

So, do they just test your DGP like they just test my TTG?

The only test I have had done is the TTG because that's what I had done initially after taking matters into my own hands and going to my local health fair. Celiac is so common they do that screening at our health fair. My number was so high that my doctor didn't order other labs and went straight...

Celiac used to be considered a children's disease - so, by the old standards, you are a bit old to be diagnosed. We now know that Celiac can start at any age. I don't know if you are a male or a female, but untreated Celiac can lead to miscarriages and infertility. And all the other stuff...
