Hello Again Winter

24 Feb

Last week we got a tease of spring. It came in and got us excited about doing yard work and being outdoors. Even my trees were fooled and they sprouted delicate little buds ready to welcome the summer.

Then the wind got cold and we were swiftly reminded that winter is still upon us. We desperately need the snow and will take any moisture we can get so I’m not going to complain. This calls for winter food though so let’s get cooking!



The mountain looks like it may be enjoying a little snowfall.10922050_10100730293203851_33134340_n

Brrr… not much snow accumulation but the trees got a good frosting!


Quick and Easy Green One Pot Chile Stew

In a stockpot brown a package of ground beef (I used about one pound). I also sprinkle in some dried minced onion while cooking the ground beef (you can also use fresh chopped onion). When the meat is browned drain the excess grease as necessary.

Wash and cube potatoes into bite sized pieces (you can also peel them if you like) I used about 8 small potatoes (half yukon gold and half red skinned because I had them on hand) and add to your hamburger in the stockpot.

Next add green chile. I used a container of Bueno Autumn Roast (13 oz) from the freezer section. I love all New Mexico green chile and you can’t beat the quick and easy no peeling required Bueno container when you’re in a hurry (and have to take out your contact lenses in a few hours). I love the flavor of the autumn roast the best and the heat is good for all members of my family.

I tossed in a teaspoon of beef stock base then filled my pot with water.

Simmer over medium to low heat until your potatoes are tender and your house smells delicious.

Salt to taste then serve!
