    It turned out great. I added some lime after it was done cooking and served it with plain yogourt. My husband and kids loved it!

    I see many recipes mention “green chili”. I’ve always wondered which green chili should be used? Jalapeno, Anaheim, Poblano, Hatch? I suppose it probably depends on how spicy one prefers?
