  1. Change

    Place everything in the Phase One section in a large thick bottom pot.

  2. Change

    Simmer on medium covered for 3 hours.

  3. Change

    Roast pictured after 3 hours of simmering. Pull roast from broth and set to the side. Trim any fat. By this time your broth should be a fraction of what it was.

  4. Change

    1/2" chop all vegetables in the Phase Two section and add to a covered pot. Simmer for 15 minutes. Add additional water if needed to simmer veggies but only what you'll need. This should be a thick stew at its finish.

  5. Change

    1 Pound bucket Bueno Hatch Green Chilie pictured.

  6. Change

    Chop your roast into 1"+ cubes and add to pot at 15 minutes in. Stir regularly.

  7. Change

    Simmer pot 15 additional minutes covered. Stir regularly.

  8. Change

    Uncover pot and simmer until most all fluids have dissipated. Stir regularly.

  9. Change

    Since seasonings can lose flavor with long simmer times - taste test at the finish and add what you'd like. I'll always add additional Cumin, Green Chili Powder and garlic. Lastly, add fresh Cilantro and mix.

  10. Change

    Serve with an ice cold Mexican beer. Enjoy!
