“This zippy stew is very easy and quick to prepare,” promises Bonnie Marlow of Ottoville, Ohio. “The hardest part is peeling and dicing the potatoes, and even that can be done the night before.” TIP: “Just place the potatoes in water and store them in the refrigerator overnight to speed up assembly the next day,” Bonnie recommends.
