Super bomb! I substituted the canned green chili with a frozen hot green chili. Gave it some serious spice. Also used chicken broth instead of water.

To be fair i am rating this stew 5 stars because my dinner guests loved it. However my husband and I didn't really care for it so I have passed the recipe along but won't be making it again myself. I think it is just a matter of personal tastes. I don't overly care for curry and my husband doesn't really like tomatoes, this recipe has a lot of both those things.

I found this recipe many years ago in the Taste of Home magazine. I cook it in my slow cooker on high a couple hours then turn in down to low for 4 hours, or cook all day on low. Definately my favorite recipe, I use pork, chicken, turkey, hamburger, left over roast/steak whatever I have on hand. Always excellent no matter what meat I use.

This is a wonderful tasting green chile stew, I've made it several times. The touch of fennel adds an interesting note. I skip the canned beans and cook up a pot of pinto beans to ladle into our bowls.
