Old-Fashioned Colorado Green Chile

contributed by Laurel Turner

Ingredients:
2 lbs. cubed pork
1 tbsp. minced garlic (about 2 cloves)
 1/4 tsp pepper
3 tbsp. flour
2 cups diced fresh tomatoes (you can substitute 1 14 oz can)
1 14.5 oz can chicken broth
1 cup water
 2 ½ cups diced green chiles (about 20 chiles)
2 cups diced onion
 Salt & pepper to taste.
Instructions: Brown pork in skillet with garlic and pepper. Add flour and brown as well.
In crock pot, mix pork, garlic, tomatoes, water, green chiles and onion. Simmer for at least 2 hours. Water can be added to thin down and flour can be added to thicken.
(You can also cook it in a large pot on the stove at low heat.)
Hint: Let simmer at least an hour before tasting and modifying by adding chiles, more tomatoes, garlic, etc.
This is a very meaty, very slightly thickened chili – thin for Colorado style chili. If you like really thick chili, use 4-5 tbsp. flour rather than 3 and/or reduce the water.
Makes approximately 3 quarts. Serves 8-10.
Prep time: 1 hour (includes dicing pork, garlic tomatoes, and chiles)
Cooking time: 2 hours
Total time: 3 hours
