Green Chili Stew!

Hey there my readers! How goes it?!
It feels like this week has been really long! And I still have one day left!
But thank goodness it is only one! It was only a 4 day week too!
They are filming a movie by us so our dirt parking lot where I normally park is closed so luckily I get to park in the nice paved lot across from my work :-) no complaints there.

So on for the review of something to watch Adam and I have been watching Bewitched. 
We have finished the first season and just started the 2nd season last night!
It is actually a great show! It makes me laugh constantly! So if you are looking for a good fun show to watch and one to watch before go to sleep then it is a good one!
But you can tell it was made a long time ago with the housewife references 
and the fact that her husband always seems to be flirting with other women but they are so funny. 
Especially their neighbors who always see her doing magic and then her husband thinks she is a nut and makes her take medicine, he he. Anyway the first season is in black and white and 
now the second season is in color it is weird I kind of liked it in black and white! I also kept thinking to myself I think she is really pregnant and then she got pregnant on the show and then I googled it and 
guess what she was! 

Anyway enough about Bewitched how about some pictures of my yummy green chili stew! 
Look how excited I was chopping onions. Yes I had gloves on but it was for when I was grating the garlic but alas my hands still smelled like garlic the next day. 
My chicken is ready, my onions & garlic are ready and look at all those yummy potatoes just waiting to be cooked :-) Yes I love potatoes.  
 Everything is added and ready to start cooking! Even my frozen green chili!
 Here is my cooking companion Lady. Yes she is very excited because she thinks she deserves whatever I have drop to be her dinner. Especially when it is pasta night. She refused to take a picture with me :-(.
 My lovely croissant rolls!
 Yummy smells good! Time to let it simmer!
 All done and ready to eat! Looks good and smells good too!
 Adam was very happy I made him green chili stew! I now have to make more :-).

Well so there you have it! My first time making green chili stew and I would say it was a success. Thanks to Adam's brother-in-law whose recipe I stole :-). I even
had to make my parents some this last weekend because they were jealous that Adam got some and the didn't. 
Want to know how to make it?! Okay I will tell you

Meat (chicken, stew pork, etc)
1 white onion chopped
2 gloves garlic grated
1 can petite diced tomatoes
1 container bueno green chili
2lbs potatoes sliced unpeeled
64oz. chicken broth

1. Cook the chicken, pork, whatever meat you pick in a skillet with some vegetable oil. Add salt and pepper to your liking. Cook till the pork is brown and the chicken is I guess white lol. And set off to the side.
2. Put your 1 chopped white onion and 2 cloves of grated garlic in the skillet and cook them. (I used the already minced garlic that you can find at the store when I did my parents it was sooo much easier)
3. Slice about 2lbs of potatoes, or however many you want, the more potatoes the better I say. Leave the peel on if you can get it clean enough.
4. Add in the chicken, onion/garlic, 1 can of petite diced tomatoes, 1 container of bueno green chili (mild, hot, whatever), potatoes, and 64oz. of chicken broth (you can use more or less depending on if you like it soupy or not).
5. Cook it on high until it starts really boiling, I let it boil good for about five min.
6. Cover with a lid and let it simmer for about 1-2 hours. Mine was usually ready a little after an hour it just depends on how tender you want everything. Add salt and pepper to your liking as it cooks.
7. Eat and enjoy :-)

Nighty Nighty Y'all!
