Enduring winter’s chill always seems worth it because local Southwestern fast-casual chain Dos Coyotes offers its hearty green chili stew at this time of year. Made with fire-roasted New Mexican green chilies, white-meat chicken and creamy red potato, this chili-verde-esque bowl leads with comfort but finishes with a noticeable heat. Served with two warm flour tortillas, the stew makes for a filling lunch.
