Green Chile Stew

There is nothing better than a warm delicious bowl of green chile stew when it is snowing outside. Growing up in New Mexico green chile is everywhere and so is green chile stew. The downfall to green chile stew is that it is normally high carb, so I have been wanting to make a low carb version and this recipe is amazing!

One of the main staples in green chile stew is potatoes, but of course those are not something we would ideally eat, and I have tried radishes and those are a great substitute but Chayote squash is a great substitute for potatoes especially in a stew, they taste so similar!

The spice from the chile in this stew will warm your tummy! Here in New Mexico it is very easy for us to get green chile, but if you are not from here check your local Walmart and check the freezer section for green chile.
