    Sue Lau's Note:

    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!

      This is one of my husband's favorite recipes. I like it with hominy but he prefers when I substitute a can of corn. It can easily be adapted for the crockpot ... just toss all the ingredients in and cook on low for 8 hours or so.

      Now this was stew! Made just as written, using 2 chipotles & 1 tablespoon of the adobo sauce. The thick, lovely "gravy" was pretty fiery! Loved the addition of hominy! Thanks!
