I made this recipe on 1/31/10 for the " Photo Swap #8 " ( and our dinner :) ).I sort of made the recipe as it was written ( read misread ;) )The beans were added at the same time as the tomatoes. And speaking of the beans, I had to use some pintos for part of the kidneys.And instead of adding the cheese to the stew, a small amount was placed on each serving. The taste started out mellow and stayed the same through out. Thanks for posting and, " Keep Smiling :) "
I choose this for Spring PAC 2007. I put it all in a crock pot after I browned the meat, and it worked out just fine. About an hour before I served it I added the kidney beans. The flavors were complementary to each other and it wasnâ€™t really spicy but mellow which my kids prefer. My dh ended up eating his in tortillas with cheese on top, I had mine with rice and cheese. This was very good and I will add it to my rotation of meals for one I can put into a crockpot! Thanks for a great one Julie!
