Chile Verde

Carne de puerco en chile verde is a popular home-cooked dish in Latin communities from Los Angeles to New Mexico. It is simply a pork stew with mild green chiles added. The fresh chiles are roasted to give them a smoky flavor; they can be done over an open flame, under the broiler, or on an outdoor grill, but canned chiles work fine as well. There is not much water added here; you want this to be nice and thick. Serve with corn or flour tortillas. COOKER: Medium or large round or oval SETTING AND COOK TIME: LOW for 6 to 8 hours
