Green Chile Stew

Hi folks! It has been over a month since my last post. Time really has been flying by. It feels just like yesterday that I did my Posole Stew post from Josefina’s book. Well, this is another recipe from Josefina’s Cook Book from the American Girl series. I must say I am enjoying the simple and scrumptious recipes that are coming from these books and making them my own.


2 pounds stew beef

1 large onion

1 T of minced garlic

5 tablespoons olive oil

1 2oz. can of green chiles

2.5 cups water

1 teaspoon flour


Heat three tablespoons of the olive oil in a large pot over medium heat with the stew meat. While doing this chop up the onion. After the the meat has been browned add one more teaspoon of olive oil with the minced garlic and onion. Once the onions are browned add the chiles, personally, I did not drain the chiles, and cook for one minute. Add the water and bring it to boil in the pot. After the water is done boiling let it simmer for up to forty five minutes. Close to the end of the simmering take one tablespoon of olive oil and one teaspoon flour in a small skillet to create a roux. Stir the roux in with the stew. Let it cool and serve!
