Greg's Famous Green Chile Stew

My husband went to college in New Mexico.  And that means one thing:  A sincere love for all things Green Chile.  There used to be a restaurant in town, modeled after The Shed in Santa Fe.  This was Mr. DD's favorite restaurant until sadly they went out of business.  They were famous far and wide for their Green Chile Stew.  In a quest to duplicate their savory stew, Mr. DD like Dr. Frankenstein, has spent years in his lab concocting the perfect recipe.  It isn't quite like the traditional New Mexico-style stew.  This version uses beef instead of pork.  But equally mouth watering!  I would definitely call this Mr. DD's signature dish.  It's taken him 15+ years to perfect, but it was definitely worth the trial and effort.  Thankfully, he agreed to let me post what he called, "A very sanitized version" of the recipe.  I hope you all enjoy it as much as we do.

Here it is!
