Great Northern Green Chili Stew


1 Onion Diced
1 lb. Ground Beef
1 lb. Spicy Pork Sausage (Hot)
1 lg. Can Crushed Tomatoes
3 Cloves of Garlic, peeled and crushed
2 Small Cans Green Chiles
5 Potatoes, peeled and cut into bite size cubes
2 Cans Great Northern Beans, plus juice
Corriander, ground and whole
Celery Seeds


In a large stock pot brown the ground beef, onion and pork sausage. Drain. Add the tomatoes, garlic, green chiles and the beans. Do not drain the beans. I use two kinds of coriander. I use ground but also some of the whole for texture and interest. Next add the coriander, oregano, celery seeds, salt and pepper to taste. Add enough water to cover then simmer for 1-1 1/2 hours. Add potatoes and enough water to cover the potatoes. Stir then simmer until the potatoes are tender.


I created this recipe for my family and it's been a favorite ever since. Add some crusty bread or flour tortilla and cheese to round out the meal.
