Wednesday Gourmet: Green Chile Stew

Its getting so cold out…yes, I know it’s November…but I’m just not ready for this chilly weather.  I finally broke out my winter jacket yesterday.  This New Mexican Green Chile Stew from I Love New Mexico might just be the perfect thing to keep me warm this weekend.  The recipe is super simple and reminds me of my trip to Santa Fe this Spring.
