Here's my green chili stew recipe:

2 lb. pork meat,  cut into 1/4 inch cubes
8 large fresh mild green chiles, peeled, seeded and chopped **
5 green serranos, chopped (I use canned)
1 cup salsa verde (I use La Costena)
1 cup chicken broth
1 large onion, finely chopped
1 tsb ground cumin
1 tsb New Mexico chile powder (medium)
1 tsb Mexican oregano
2 cloves garlic, minced
3 tbsp olive oil
2 tbsp sugar

Brown the meat in the oil. Add the onion and garlic and sauté until the
onion is soft. Add the remaining ingredients (less the sugar) and cook
slowly until meat is tender 1-2 hours. Stir in 2 tbsp sugar, cool the pan in
ice water and place in the refrigerator overnight.

** In Norway, everything that looks like a green (or red) chile pepper is
called green (or red) chile pepper (actually the spelling is Chilli not
so I don't know the name of the peppers I use in my green chili stew. They
are about 4-5 inches long and about 1 inch wide, and looks like your
New Mexico or Anaheim variants. Probably they are the same. It is not
common to remove the skin on the chiles either.
