Give your leftover beef or steak new life with this mouthwatering green chile stew!

This green chile beef and potatoes recipe is a tasty and hearty way to get creative with your leftover beef. If you've got any steak left over from the night before, don't just reheat it: transform it! I used flank steak for this recipe but you can experiment with other cuts of beef. Just shred the meat, add a few complementary ingredients and you're done! Lunch or dinner just got a green chile makeover.

This dish has just the right amount of spice for my palate, which makes it suitable for the whole family. The star of the show is the green chile sauce, which infuses the shredded beef with so much flavor. And if you don't want to use beef, check out this similar for a green chile chicken stew.

Want to give this dish an upgrade? Serve it on a corn tostada and add a few avocado slices. Yum!
