Ingredients

    16 oz roasted, peeled and chopped New Mexico green chile
    6 oz pork stew meat (cut into small pieces)
    4 medium russet potatoes scrubbed but not peeled cut into large cubes
    1/2 medium onion diced
    3 cloves garlic minced
    1 medium roma tomato coarsely chopped
    1 tbsp olive oil
    1/2 tsp cumin
    1/2 tsp garlic salt
    10 cups water

Directions

In a 2 quart pot heat oil until hot, add meat and onions. You want a good brown sear on the meat and onions are transparent. Season the meat with the cumin and garlic salt then add garlic and allow the garlic to sauté until just golden. Add green chile and stir well. There should be a nice collection of browned bits on the bottom of the pot...this will add flavor to the water so you don't need to use stock!

Add the water and the tomatoes to the pot and stir well using a wooden spoon to loosen up all the delicious browned bits from the bottom of the pot. Bring the stew to a boil and then reduce to a good steady simmer and allow to cook without a lid until the liquid has reduced a bit. The soup will look denser than when you started but do not reduce too much you still want it to be a bit soupy. About 20-30 minutes before you are done, add the potatoes. You want them to be cooked and firm but not mushy so don't add them right from the beginning. You may want to add a little more salt to taste but the flavor of the chile and the meat with the onions and garlic may be all the flavor you need!
