Reviews forSouthwestern Meat and Potato Stew
"This stew was o.k. It is hearty and filling, i will give it that. But it had little flavor and there was certainly nothing special about it. I really don't understand how it won a blue ribbon."
"I'm not a stew person, but this was absolutely delicious. I also substituted 1 1/2 pound stew meat for the ground beef. I just cut it up into small pieces. This recipe is definitely a keeper."
"Great recipe to make in a cast iron dutch over the coals, we love to make it when we go camping!!!"
"This stew was Terrific!!!! The only thing my husband added was 5-6 dashes of Chipotle Tabasco Sauce. Hit the spot.~~Thank you"
