New Mexican Hatch Green Chile Stew

By Roy Glidden

Reed and I love getting out of the city and spending time in the desert. Our favorite pastimes are searching for rocks in the desert (we are rockhounds!) and cooking great plant-based meals after a hard day in the desert. Here is a recipe that I tossed together impromptu with ingredients we were lucky enough to have in the kitchen.  I love cooking Southwestern and chuck wagon-style foods while we are at our desert camp. It really suites the surroundings and sets the mood - especially when cooked over and served around the camp fire.
