When I saw that AlbuKirky Seasonings was having a sale, I jumped on it. I knew that Kirk’s Green Chile rub was going to be amazing on a chicken cooked in the Char-Broil Big Easy. Just that perfect hint of green chile peppers made each bite of this chicken perfect. You’re not talking spicy here, just wonderful pepper flavor. No need to add anything else. I used a whole chicken but you can of course use pieces or halves or heck, just wings. This right here is why I have a Big Easy. Well, three actually. Seriously, the skin on this green chile rubbed chicken was crazy good. You have to exercise serious restraint. I recommend having a friend on hand to keep you from eating the entire thing before it’s even done resting.
Oh my goodness. Just about every taste I love in one bowl. I could eat this green chile mac and cheese stew all day long. Spicy chorizo. Beefy broth. Tomatoes with chiles. Beans. All with a lot of kick. The perfect dish for a cold day. Just about any cheeses can be used in this stew, but I kept the spicy theme going and topped it with a habanero jack cheese. There’s nothing wimpy about it. This dish has some serious kick to it.
For a nice twist, substitute a can of fire-roasted diced tomatoes for the tomatoes with chiles.
