Huer Huero Road Green Chili

“This recipe is from a friend in a little town on the central coast of California and is named for the river (usually a dry bed) that runs through the town. It is supposed to be a 100 year old recipe from Cochise County in Arizona. Although the ingredients and method of making the chili looks a little strange, it turns out absolutely wonderful. It won first prize in the town's chili cook-off in 2007. I find it easier to dice the meat if you partially freeze it first.”
