Sure smells good in my house… A big pot of Green Chili Chicken Stew is simmering away!
So Fall in Colorado has more than a few things going for it. Besides amazing weather, Hatch Green Chili’s are in season and the Bronco’s football is too. Us Colorado folk are pretty much obsessed with the two. I bought 3 bushels of the chili’s that are in my freezer, which I am very happy about, especially when I can grab a bag and whip up a pot of Green Chili Chicken stew.
I am pretty much a green chili snob and have only made with pork, but the other day my friend Johnny K texted over a little “food porn”. He is chili obsessed too and sent over a picture of his version of Green chili chicken stew and gave me inspiration to whip up my version of this spicy goodness and just in time for the Bronco’s game this afternoon.
Life is good in Colorado today. Not a cloud in the sky, 70 degrees, Bronco’s playing and we get to eat chili!
- 2 tbs olive oil
- 2 cups onions diced
- 4 garlic cloves minced
- 6 cups chopped Hatch Green Chili's (see note)
- 1 28 oz can diced tomatoes drained
- 2 cups frozen corn
- 2 cups pealed and diced potatoes
- 1 rotisserie chicken chopped
- 8 cups chicken broth
- 2 tbs cumin
- 1 tbs Chimayo red chili powder (or other red chili to your liking)
- 2 tbs Hatch green chili powder (optional, use it if you have it)
- 2 tsp salt
- 1 tsp pepper
- ¼ Wondra flour (see note)
- 1 bunch cilantro chopped
- In a separate pot of salted water add pealed and diced potatoes. Bring to a boil and cook until almost cooked through. About 10 minutes. Stain and set aside.
- Heat up olive oil in bottom of a large dutch oven. Add onions and saute for about 5 minutes. Add garlic, green chili and tomatoes.
- Stir in salt and pepper, cumin and ground chili.
- Add chicken broth and simmer for 20 minutes.
- In the meantime, remove meat from the rotisserie chicken and chop into bite size pieces.
- Add chicken, corn and potatoes into chili.
- Add flour to thicken and cook for another 10 minutes.
- Stir in chopped cilantro and serve.
Wondra flour is a great flour for thickening. If you don't have it. Add about 4 tbs of regular flour to about 1 cup of the hot liquid and mix well to get out all lumps. Add back to pot to thicken.
