Green Chile Stew with Hidden Veggies! (They’ll never know!!)

My son Devin loves chile. When he was 2, he would dip his chips into really hot salsa and you could tell it was hot for him because he would suck in his breath and fan air at his lips, but he would also keep eating it. He knew we were getting chile this weekend and so he requested ‘real’ green chile stew with chicken. I say ‘real’ because I don’t buy meat very often and the kids are used to Boca or Quorn meat substitutes so today’s recipe will be a treat.

We went to a dinner party where we had a wonderful taco bar (I’m kicking myself for not documenting the event). My friend Karen sent me home with the roasted vegetables that were in the bar. They included cauliflower, zucchini, onions and corn.

Now, I’m making this stew for Devin, who hates most vegetables, but I’m going to be sneaky and puree them so that they become part of the base and he’ll never know they are there (that is the mashed potato looking stuff on the platter).
