Reviews for Zesty Green Chili Stew
"Have made this many times good for a cold day . Family enjoyed this said it was good.added some extra seasoning to it"
"I must say I was pleasantly surprised when I tried this recipe. This is a real nice change of pace to the normal chili recipe. I thought that without any seasoning this would be bland. But sometimes you have to leave some seasoning to the people eating it. I did season the ground beef while I browned it.(I couldn't find any preseasoned ground beef(just a little humor)). But other than that it is a great recipe. I sprinkled it with cheese, a little sour cream and some ground pepper and it was nice and tasty. I can't wait to get some garden fresh tomatoes to put on top."
"This is a regular in my kitchen.It's a wonderful tasting stew that is a good break from tomato based soups/ stews.Also, it doesn't take very long to prepare so it's a great weekday meal.The shredded cheddar cheese tops off each serving wonderfully."
