Recipe: Bacon-Green Chile Meatloaf

As I mentioned in my Lamb and Olive Chili recipe, ground meat will save your life. That goes for anytime, but especially during a Whole30. But sometimes…it sure gets old, doesn’t it?

Recipe: Chile Verde Pork

Stews in New Mexico tend to be simple affairs—some meat, some onions, and a richly flavored sauce steeped in tradition. If you’re used to the black-bean-and-avocado Mexicali cuisine or the greasy, melty plate of Tex-Mex, you might be surprised at what you get in the northern parts of New Mexico.
