When we were first married I was an Air Force wife.
Most of our time was spent in Altus, OK.
While living there we had the opportunity to meet some really neat people who have stayed with us over the years. Some I still talk t, others have stayed part of our family through pictures and recipes.
The Goodpeed's were one of the first families we became friends with. They were from Wyoming and Tracy's mother would come to visit and cook! She was, and I'm sure still is, an incredible cook; and she loved to do it! She shared this easy, yummy recipe with me all those years ago.
I made green chili not too long ago and the kids all loved it! I think I fed 6 that night? Anyway I'm making it again and I thought I'd share the recipe with you.
1 lb. cubed pork- 1/2" to 1" cubes
1 can diced green chili
3 04 4 diced potatoes
garlic salt and pepper to taste
chicken broth - about 48 oz.
1 1/2 tsp. ground cumin
veg. or canola oil
Cover pork cubes in flour and brown in enough oil to cover the bottom of a 10" skillet or dutch oven. Turn to med low and add green chili, potatoes, broth and seasonings. Simmer about 40 minutes.
Before serving, take off stove and thicken with flour and water. (make paste of 3/4 c. flour and 1/2 c. cold water) Add to soup, return to stove and cook 10 more minutes.
