Chile Verde con Carne y Papas (Green Chile with Beef and Potatoes)
This dish is similar to a beef stew, but with a punch of spice from the roasted green chiles. Not only is it delicious, but I also love the way it perfumes my home as it cooks. This dish gives you all the comfort and flavor of old-world Mexico.
Heat oil in a large skillet. Place the beef, potatoes, and 1 teaspoon salt in the skillet and cover and cook for about 10 minutes, until meat is cooked and potatoes are tender.
Uncover and add garlic and cook for an additional 2 minutes. Add flour and stir at least 2 minutes. Add salsa and water and stir. Let mixture come to a boil. Add additional salt to taste. Lower the heat and simmer for 5 minutes.
This dish can be eaten as an entrée or used as a topping over burritos or chiles rellenos.
