Reviews for Potato-Lentil Stew
"This is a descent stew. I'm in the process of moving, so I'm trying to use up my pantry items as well as find fast things to cook. This met both criteria; however, I'm not sure if I would make again. I ate a lot of hot sauce with mine. I felt like it need an extra kick."
"Good Recipe !!!"
"Too spicy for my family. Would try it again with less heat. Used a hearty dollop of sour cream to cool it down."
"Loved the recipe."
"At first my husband didn't like it real well. But he next day he decided it was very good."
