Reviews for Slow Cooker Southwest Beef Stew
"This is a chili recipe. Very very tasty ! I make something very close to this recipe. I dont use rice and add several different fresh chili's."
"Really good, This is more like a Chili, I will be making this Chili again."
"This stew is yummy I made a few changes to suit our taste. I used taco seasoning instead if chipotle, I used mild salsa instead of tomatoes with green chillies. I added two cans of chicken broth . I wanted it for supper tonight so I simmered it in the stove for an hour then added the rice . I will definitely make this again."
"I wish I'd had this recipe sooner - today is a Soup-and-Bread fundraiser at the retirement community where I live. I would have given them this recipe to use as one of their soups! Can't wait to make it for my husband and me."
"I made this stew with stew meat instead of ground beef. I didn't brown it ahead of time, just coated it with flour, and it turned out very well. I didn't have any Southwest chipotle seasoning but I used cumin, garlic and cilantro and it was still very good."
