El Paso Green Chile Stew

El Paso Green Chile Stew

I remember my grandfather’s second wife, Mimi, making this green chile stew at the holidays. She was from New Mexico, so she made many dishes with green chiles. I especially remember this one because she used the leftover pot roast instead of pork – because my grandfather loved pot roast. The heat in the green chiles feels good, especially on a cold day. This recipe is super easy to make and a meal that everyone will love! 


  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 3 tablespoons El Paso Spice Blend, divided
  • 1 large red bell pepper, chopped
  • 1 large green bell pepper, chopped
  • 1 large yellow onion, chopped

  • 8 small Yukon gold potatoes, diced

  • 2 cups roasted corn, 
  • 2 cups leftover pot roast, chopped
