Green chile is a staple, like salt, here in New Mexico. Try also making this a little thinner, with or without cream, adding leftver chicken or pork and some chopped green onion tops. Ladle over crisp corn chips (Doritos, etc.) garnished with small cubes of jack or cheddar cheese and cilantro. Or, just use your imagination! A day w/o green chile is a day w/o sunshine!
