Classic Red Chile Stew


Try spreading this on Indian Fry Bread, then folding the bread over the filling.


  • 8 dried red New Mexican chiles
  • 2 pounds pork or beef stew meat, cut into 1 1/2-inch cubes
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 4 cups beef broth, divided


  1. Arrange chiles on a cookie sheet and place in a 200 degree F oven for 5 minutes or until they smell like they are toasted. Be careful not to burn them.
  2. Remove the stems and seeds. Cover chiles with 2 cups of the beef broth and let sit for 20 minutes until they are softened.
  3. Place chiles and broth in a blender and puree until smooth.
  4. Brown meat in oil and remove from the pan.
  5. Add 1 cup of the beef broth to the pan to de-glaze it.
  6. Combine all ingredients in a crockpot or large pot, bring to a boil, reduce heat, and simmer for 2 hours, or until the meat is very tender and starts to fall apart, and the stew is thickened, adding more water if necessary.
