This easy and delicious stew is one of my newer recipes, but it's quickly become a favorite. Almost everything we cook in our house has a Mexican flavor.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Aug. 25, 2013

We live in West Texas, so we like things with some spice. This stew really fit the bill. It was hearty and tasty and had a nice kick. My husband kept saying "wow" and "superb" as he ate it! I added some cubed carrots and potatoes during the last 20 minutes of cooking (like some of the other reviewers) and would do this next time, as well.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed May. 11, 2013

It was quick & easy, but it was so average that I received no comments at all from my family when I made it.
