Tyler's Green Chile Stew Recipe

Posted October 19, 2017

It's soup season, and people always ask me for this recipe.

So here it is:


  • 8 cups vegetable stock*
  • 4 large potatoes, diced
  • 3 cans of pinto beans
  • 1 can of corn kernels
  • Hatch green chile, chopped **
  • Half an onion
  • 1 tbsp of garlic
  • Olive oil


  1. Chop the onions and garlic and saute them in olive oil at the bottom of a large stock pot.
  2. When the onions have turned translucent, pour the stock into the pot.
  3. Add the potatoes, beans, and corn and bring the pot to a boil.
  4. Once the pot is boiling, reduce the heat to low.
  5. Add the green chile.
  6. Let the pot simmer until the potatoes are soft and the stew has thickened, usually 30-60 minutes, stirring every few minutes. ***
  7. Serve in a bowl with cheese on top and a warm tortilla on the side for dipping.
  8. Enjoy!


* I prefer bullion cubes to premade stock because they're cheaper and easier to store. Most bullion cubes make 2 cups of stock.

** The amount of green chile is left as an exercise to the reader. I suggest starting small and adding more until you have enough heat.

*** It's easy to burn the bottom of the pot if left unattended for too long. Make sure you stir!
