Here's a great white chile recipe that uses the amazing flavors of roasted green chile from the garden! During harvest season, we also throw in a few apples if we have an abundance of them, it's a nice way to use up some apples, thickens and adds a hint of sweetness to the chile.
White Green Chile Recipe:
• 3 cups chicken stock (or bone broth/vegetable broth)
To cook the chicken and make bone broth, we like to put a whole chicken, lemon slices, and throw whole sprigs of thyme and oregano herbs in the crockpot (or instant pot), and let it cook all day (less if using instant pot). Then strain out the broth, separate the chicken meat from the bones and set aside.
In a large stock pot, add oil and fry up onions and garlic for a few minutes, add potatoes (optional apples) and fry for a little longer, then add chicken stock, roasted/peeled green chile* (shown above), cumin, and beans, and chicken and simmer on the stove until potatoes are soft. Add salt and pepper to taste. Add sour cream or coconut milk and stir in.
