Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    Juniper berries actually give gin its distinctive flavor. The blue-green berries can be purchased dried, but if you can't find them in your grocery store, use a splash of gin in this green chile stew instead.
  • tip 2
    Afraid your green chili stew will be too hot? No problem! Use Anaheim chilies instead of poblano to moderate the heat.
  • tip 3
    If lamb isn't your favorite, feel free to make a pork green chile stew instead by substituting lamb with pork in this dish.
