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.

I have a friend with MS, another with breast cancer and a third with RA. At the same age my only problem is I cannot eat gluten! So when I start getting frustrated about food I think about that and how lucky I truly am. Once you get in the swing of it it gets easier and then you start to feel ...

I know I needed the confirmation. My hubby went gluten free per the very poor advice from my allergist and his GP. It worked, but we really do not know if he has celiac disease. He refuses to do a gluten challenge and I do not blame him. We do know that gluten makes him sick. He has been gl...

Yes, I used to write a lot, for work and pleasure. Now, not so much. Which probably explains why you guys have to suffer the occasional bout of nonsense!

Some cookware you can get rid of the gluten by running in the oven clean cycle then scrubbing. Gluten is a protein not a germ, so disinfectant will not get rid of it but high heat above 500F can destroy the proteins. This way you can save cast iron and some baking pans/sheets. To make double sure...

JMG, I just read your link and the posts about your non celiac diagnosis and although they are about a painful experience, they are enjoyable to read. You are very talented. Have any of your jobs involved writing?
