Chipotle Beef Stew

READY IN: 2hrs 10mins
Recipe by PalatablePastime

I found this recipe on Epicurious, and it really caught my eye. I love the way the chipotles give the stew a light smokiness. It's almost as if it were prepared over a campfire. And of course, anything spicy is definitely good!

WWWWWWonderful! This is definitely gonna be a regular in my house. I browned the meat w/onions and garlic and put it and everything else except the hominy in the slowcooker for 8 hours and then the hominy and the end. The meat was sooo tender. I never used hominy in anything else except pozole and it was real good. Infact next time I think I'll add two cans!
