Rudy's Green Chile Chicken Stew - need recipe!

edited 1:54PM in EggHead Forum
Our cheese smoking friends brought dinner over yesterday as their Egg "timeshare" payment. Ginger brought some home-made cornbread and some fabulous green chile chicken stew she'd bought at our local (franchise, not company store) Rudy's BBQ (the worst BBQ in Texas, as they advertise).

So now I need a recipe! It's got spicy green chile, had chunks of potato, obviously some smoked, shredded chicken, not sure what else. It is fabulous and I need to make some! This in NOT white chili - no beans that I could detect (but then, I'd had some wine.....)

Anyone familiar with the product who can offer up a recipe for such a thing? I know I can buy it, but I have a passion for cooking everything I possibly can from scratch... (the other gals on my street think I'm a freak, they'd rather eat out every meal or buy prepared meals from Schwan's....).

    Don't know about that place, but here is one I have been doing for years. Perhaps it will serve as a guide.Just toss in some papas.

    Chili, Pork, Green

    5 Lbs. Pork, Butt, Boneless
    2-3 Lbs. Onions, Quartered, Sliced 1/4 inch Thick
    6 11 Ozs. Tomatillos, Tomatoes, Canned, Remove Husks & Stem, Save Liquid
    3 7 Ozs. Taco Sauce, Green, Mild
    2-3 3 1/2 Ozs. Green Chilis, Diced
    1 Good Beer, Coors, Corona, not dark or light
    2 Pints Chicken Broth
    2-3 Pints Salsa Fresca
    4 Tbs. Red Tomato Paste`
    2-3 Whole Jalapeños, Seeds & Veins Removed, Finely Diced, You decide How Hot!
    3 Tbs. Red Pepper, Crushed
    6 Tbs Green Chili Powder,
    2-3 Tbs. Sugar
    2 Tbs. Cumin
    Salt/Pepper to taste

    1 Cut the pork into 1 inch pieces, Saute in a Dutch oven to render grease and partially cook. Drain. Cook Onions in a little olive oil until start to wilt. Add pork back into pot and then the rest of the ingredients.
    2 Bring to boil and then simmer. Place lid on pot and cook 1-1 1/2 hours. Remove lid toward end and reduce if too much liquid. Add beer or chicken broth if to thick.
    3 Serve with fresh hot tortillas and/or rice.
    4 Works well with leftover turkey or chicken also. Freezes very well!
    5 This can also be done on the BGE, 9 QT Dutch Oven, Indirect, Plate Setter leg up, something to lift the DO off the plate setter 1/2 inch or so, 350F, no top on DO, light smoke couple of hours. Keep an eye on it so it does not dry out.

    Yield: 2

    Thanks, Ross! I think if I use either chicken or turkey thighs in that recipe I'll get something close!
