New Mexican Red Chili


When you order chili in New Mexico, this is what will be served to you.


  • 6 to 8 dried red chiles, stems removed
  • 2 pounds pork, cut into 1 1/2-inch cubes
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 3 cups water or beef broth
  • Salt, to taste


  1. Place the chiles on a baking sheet and toast at 250 degrees F for 15 minutes, being careful not to let them burn.
  2. Place the chiles in a saucepan, cover with water, and simmer for 15 minutes until soft.
  3. Place chiles in a blender with the water, and puree until smooth.
  4. Brown the pork in the oil. Add the garlic and sauté. Pour off any excess fat.
  5. Combine the chile mixture, pork and remaining water, bring to a boil, then reduce the heat and simmer until the pork is very tender and starts to fall apart — at least 2 hours.
