Chili Verde Salsa Stew

Green Chili's are foods that impart tremendous flavor to any dish and are beneficial as a medicinal vegetable. Eating green chili's will help drain your sinus with their intense heat plus green chili's are low in fat and cholesterol.

Green chili's contain up to 6 times the amount of vitamin C as a small orange. They contain vitamins B, E and A and the vibrant color indicates high amounts of antioxidant beta-carotenes which does support the cardiovascular system.

Contrary to popular belief the heat from the chili's provides a soothing effect on the digestion and may disolve blood clots because of the Capsaicin, a chemical stored in chilis which supplies the heat you feel while eating green chili's.
