Ingredients Directions
  1. Preheat broiler.Begin by roasting the green chilies. Place them on the broiler tray a few inches from the heat and blacken them on each side. Remove, place in a bowl and cover with plastic wrap. Set aside for about 10 minutes.
  2. When peppers are cool enough to handle peel off the skin and scrape out the seeds, ribs and stem. If you prefer more heat you can leave in the seeds and ribs. Chop and set aside.
  3. Lightly coat the bottom of a large pot with vegetable spray and heat on medium high. Add the onions and garlic. Season with salt and pepper if desired and cook for about 2 minutes.
  4. Add the pork cubes and brown. If using whole tomatoes pour off the liquid into the pot and chop up the tomatoes. Add the tomatoes, green chilies and 2 cups of water and stir. Bring to a simmer, cover and reduce heat. Simmer for 45 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  5. Whisk the remaining water and flour together until smooth and add to the green chile sauce, while constantly stirring. The sauce will thicken slightly. Cover and continue simmering for about 15 minutes longer. The sauce will thicken more while cooking.
