June 22, 2023

Patricia Hoover, co-owner of Still Waters Vineyards in Paso Robles, California, has been making this chili recipe for almost 20 years! Based on a recipe from the Pioneer Woman, Pat has adapted it over the years, with this being its latest version. It comes together fast and easy, and is a surefire crowd pleaser. Great as a stand-alone dish, chili cook-off entry or a tasty side dish for your hot dogs and hamburgers on the grill. Pat says to try this green chili with a bottle of chilled Still Waters Vineyards Sauvignon Blanc!
