Quick and Easy Green Chile Stew

In the fall of 2011 we shot a short video for a contest sponsored by Chile Monster, a supplier of New Mexico chile, tortillas and tamales. The goal of the video was to “represent ANYTHING about New Mexico Chile, your LOVE for chile, Eating Chile, ANYTHING CHILE!”  It sounded like fun, so we went for it!

Bobby came up with a great idea that required his brother Jeff, a person who loves eating hot food (the hotter the better), to eat a bowl of really hot NM green chile. The premise of the idea – let’s make Jeff sweat!!!  For the video Bobby shot Jeff eating a bowl, actually two bowls, of fresh roasted New Mexico chile with a few beans and a little hamburger meat (recipe follows).  The video should make you smile.  It sure makes me smile!  (NOTE:  You can watch in HD if you choose.  Once you hit play, click on the “360p” and select “720pHD”, then go to full screen so you can really watch Jeff sweat! 🙂 )

You can make them the star of the show or so subtle that one hardly knows they are there.

Preserved lemons are very easy to make, but once you make preserved lemons, you are going to have to wait a few weeks (in most cases) before they’re ready. So start a jar today! Below are the instructions and a video for how I make preserved lemons.  If you don’t want to wait or just don’t want another jar of “something” sitting in your fridge for a few months, then you can make the Quick Preserved Lemons described in this post. These only take 24 hours and with one lemon you can make enough for one or two dishes.
