Chili Verde

Now before you read this post keep in mind that you are not over at Pioneer Woman, so these aren't going to be the greatest pictures....
But here is what you need
potatoes I use about 5-6
1 tbs garlic
1tbs oil
chopped onion
salsa verde
season salt
1-2 # stew meat I use beef I am sure you could use pork
water
flour

cook meat and onion in oil
Meanwhile peel and dice your potatoes.
After your meat and onion are done, remove all that juice from the pan and add garlic

Add the whole 16oz of salsa verde Mix in potatoes and 32oz water, (2 jars, or enough to cover everything)
put the lid on and let it cook for about 30 minutes until the potatoes are soft, then in a small bowl mix about 3 tbs flour with some of the juice from the sauce
Mix it back into the pot and let it simmer for another 30-45 minutes (the longer the better) but be sure to stir it up every once in awhile to make sure its not sticking
That's it, serve it with warm tortillas

I think that this is a pretty frugal dinner, the reason why I add potatoes is because that's the way my grandma makes it, back in the day when she was living in Mexico and meat was too expensive they would just buy a little bit and then use the potatoes as a filler, since potatoes are cheap and very filling I think its a great idea. And we are a 'meat and potato' type household so it works for us!

Oh, goody! You're going to make your chili verde? Does it really have potatoes in it?

Thanks for the message and article you sent me on PYP... I read through it again and it's actually quite shocking.

I need to just stop worrying about what everyone thinks. *sigh*

Potatoes?
Who'd have thunk it!
I'll have to give it a try sometime.

Okay, that looks delicious! I'm going to try it!! I just need to go get some beef and verde salsa stuff (or whatever that was called). I'll let you know how it turns out.

I frequently buy pork stew meat at smith's from the discount bin.
