Reviews for Southwest Beef Stew
"I used 1 lb ground beef , 1 can cream of corn, omitted the salt and pepper. Didn't change anything else. Next time I'll use regular corn."
"My daughters give this two thumbs up and I would have given it 5 stars, but there were no stars with which to rate it. :) It was easy and very tasty and I had all of the ingredients except for picante sauce. I used salsa instead. We had tortilla chips with ours."
"Quick easy and tastey."
"I made some adjustments to suit what I had on hand, and it was very delicious. Next time I will make sure to cook it in the crock pot so the flavors have more time to blend. Thanks for another great recipe!"
"Easy, quick and great flavor. I usually add more cumin for a bolder flavor. Never any leftovers of this stew. Definite family favorite."
"This is absolutely a new family favorite. My young daughter always requests it!"
"My husband and two kids loved this recipe :-)"
"This is so easy and very nice on a cold day. Tasty too."
"This is one of my families favorites and I love it because it is quick to prepare and I get raves at the table... family thinks I spend a lot of time at this, but truth be told I usually toss all the ingredients into a crock pot and let it prepare itself. Sometimes I use a chicken breast, pork chop or piece of beef roast to change it up. I spice it up a bit more with some chipotle pepper and chopped green chilies and it's always a hit!"
