Gildan Bowl Green chile Challenge Winning Recipe

This recipe won the first annual Gildan Bowl Green Chile Challenge recipe contest to benefit a local high school, Sandia High School in Albuquerque, NM. I helped Gildan’s publicity group organize the judging and recipe contest. This was Gildan’s first sponsorship of the bowl game conducted in Albuquerque, NM on December 17, 2011.

3 pounds pork shoulder or butt, cut into 1/2 inch cubes, excess fat removed

1 pound parched, peeled green chile, chopped

2 cloves fresh garlic, minced

Vegetable broth or vegetable boullion or base, 2 cups or more to create stew-like consistency

1 teaspoon onion powder
