Everyday Goodness

The weather here in my neck of the woods is finally getting a little cooler [down in the 20*s recently – brrrr.] So we all know that means it’s CHILI TIME. I’ll admit we often go to the ‘ole chili spice packet for a quick pot of the good stuff, but when I have the time and really want to indulge in chili goodness I pull out my favorite chili cookbook from The Manhattan Chili Company. I LOVE THE NUMERO UNO!! But also think the pepper goodness of Green Chili cannot be beat, so I’m making a pot this week and will share the goods with you:

Green Chili with Pork
1/4 cup olive oil in heavy dutch casserole. Add and cook for ten minutes:
  • 2 large yellow onions, chopped
  • 8 medium garlic cloves, peeled and minced
  • 8 fresh jalapeños, stemmed and minced [I admit, I use 4 and it's still HOT]
  • 3 carrots, peeled and sliced crosswise into 1/2 inch pieces
Stir in and cook at least 20 minutes:
  • 1 and 1/2 tabelspoon dried oregano
  • 2 - 3 pounds boneless pork shoulder , cut into 1/2 inch cubes
Stir in and cook, stirring occasionally, for 1 and 1/2 hours:
  • 5 cups chicken stock
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 can [28 ounces] Italian plum tomatoes, crushed and well drained
  • 1 potato [about 8 ounces], peeled and grated
Add, and cook, stirring often, for an additional 30 -45 minutes:
  • 1 can [27 ounces] whole roasted green chiles, drained

Thank you for a great receipe, I love browsing blogs and finding nice receipes. I am not sure we would put that many chillis in though, so hope it would still taste good.
