Green Chili Day

I normally do not like to reblog things too much, especially foods and recipes I have already made and created.  However, there are always exceptions to everything.  This is one of those exceptions.  My husband switched jobs 4 years ago, and when he did, he started a new tradition.  He brings in green chili and tamales for everyone he works with to celebrate his work anniversary.  It seems to be a popular tradition.  Every year, the pot of green chili gets bigger and bigger and it always comes home empty, so I guess they like my green chili.  Time for Green Chili  The tamales he buys, though I can easily make them.  I love to make tamales, however, they are very time consuming to make, and I usually do not have the time to make them for everyone he works with.  So a compromise is made.  I make the green chili, the tamales he buys and everyone is happy.

    1. Thank you. We love green chili. You’ll laugh at this. Yesterday a friend of mine sent a picture on facebook of green chili from a restaurant she liked, and she claimed it was the best she had ever tasted. It looked like slop on a plate to me, and I had just made a big pot of my own green chili. So I responded saying, “No, I disagree. My green chili is way better than that one”, and I sent a picture of mine. She was a little miffed because I did not agree with her opinion. Oh well. What can I say? I cook all the time, and I have to admit, I am a pretty darn good cook too. 🙂


      1. Hahaha I thought you were going to say, next thing I know someone is ringing my doorbell! 💜 She should have ran right over to steel some of the world’s best green chili! I dont know if they have tomatillos here. Guess I will look around for them.

        I’m baking a gingerbread loaf right now and the smell is driving me crazy!🤪
