Pueblo Green Chili

This is THE Mexican side-dish that you need to make.

Pueblo Green Chili

  • Time 60 minutes
  • Serves 8


  • 1/4 cup plus 1 tbsp of vegetable oil
  • 1/4 cup flour
  • 3 cloves of garlic or to taste (Garlic powder has a different taste from fresh garlic. If used as a substitute for fresh garlic, 1/8 teaspoon of garlic powder is equivalent to one clove of garlic)
  • 1 small onion
  • 1/2 lb pork loin trimmed of fat and cut in cubes
  • 1 large can or 2 small chopped green chilies
  • 1 can hot rotel tomatoes
  • 1 can regular stewed tomatoes
  • 2 cups chicken broth or pork broth if available
  • 1-2 jalapenos to taste or omit if you like. This is your key ingredient for heat. If you like it hot – go nuts.
  • cheddar cheese and sour cream for toppers

How to make it

  • heat oil in a fry pan and add flour to create a light tan roux
  • put in a bowl and set to the side for later
  • season pork cubes with garlic salt and brown in a nonstick with 1/2 tbsp of oil , not necessary to cook through just brown for flavor
  • place in a large pot on medium heat and just cover with chicken broth
  • 1/2 tbsp of oil in skillet and cook garlic and onion until lightly caramelized
  • deglaze pan with a little chicken broth and pour onion mixture into larger pot
  • put in can of rotel tomatoes, and roasted chopped peppers (or cans of green chilies are easier)
  • take stewed tomatoes – cut or size till diced sized.
  • add jalapenos according to preference
  • mix some of the chili juice with about half of the roux and pour into the pot.
  • bring to a simmer and see how thick it is, if its too thin add more roux until its as thick as you like it
  • allow it to cook on low heat for another 30 minutes or so
  • serve over rice or just as soup topped with condiments of your choice! i like making nachos out of it for day two! Even better leftover
