Hatch Green Chile Con Carne Recipe

If you like New Mexico green chile, you’re going to love this recipe. For a lot of New Mexicans, this is a very common way of doing things. If there are any leftovers in my house, you can see me making burritos, adding it to breakfast (with eggs on top), to rice, and you might even see me add more chile to it, or just eat it like it is. Basically, it’s pure goodness in the form of food.
