The BEST Green Chile Stew is loaded with bite-size chunks of pork that are seasoned with onion and plenty of garlic.

The pork is simmered in a green chile sauce (that’s salsa verde for those of you who aren’t familiar with the lingo) until tender enough to almost fall apart when you bite it.

Classic New Mexican Green Chile Stew

Filled with that irresistible pork, potatoes, and roasted green chile, this stew is what I dream of when the weather starts cooling off each fall.

And before any other native New Mexican can correct me, I am well aware of the ridiculousness of actually claiming the BEST Green Chile Stew, because technically I do love them all.

That said, this is my family’s BEST Green Chile Stew and we love it more than all the others.

Green Chile Stew

Over the years, I’ve made Green Chile Stew with many different kinds of meat: pork, ground beef, steak, chicken. However, this Green Chile Stew is hands-down our favorite.

Not that I won’t happily try YOUR green chile stew recipe if you send it to me! I don’t discriminate between green chile filled recipes.

You're going to love this Green Chile Stew that you can make in the slow cooker!

Crock-Pot Green Chile Stew

I’ve had so many requests for a slow-cooker version of this recipe, I finally played with it the other day. And I’m oh so happy to tell you that it worked beautifully.

You don’t even need to brown the meat! Just toss every ingredient into the crock-pot all at once and cover it with the lid. Simmer on HIGH for 6 hours. When the potatoes are fork-tender and the pork is tender enough to pull apart, it’s ready to eat!

This is my kind of recipe for sure and it is easy as can be whether you make it on the stove or in the crock-pot! 

Slow Cooker Green Chile Stew

This native New Mexican happily eats her green chile with breakfast, lunch, and dinner.

Packed with so much flavor and hearty chunks of potatoes and pork, this is a simple winter meal that our entire family enjoys. There is more flavor from all of the chile in this recipe than there is actual heat.

My boys all began eating this green chile stew when they were barely on solid foods. We’re big fans of starting the green chile addiction early in life around here.

Stove-Top OR Crock-Pot Classic Green Chile Stew

If you’re new to cooking with chile or leery of the heat, I recommend starting with a mild green chile. In some grocery stores, you may be lucky enough to find frozen chile in the freezer section of the grocery store.

If frozen isn’t available, you should be able to find canned green chile in different levels of heat in most grocery stores.

Several years ago, I tried making this with sweet potatoes and my family went crazy over it. My favorite version is still the traditional stew made with white potatoes, but it is really great both ways. However you make it, this soup is fantastic.

Add the potatoes and raise heat to boil. Reduce to a simmer and cook until the potatoes are fork-tender, approximately 15 minutes.
