      This was a very good stew. I omitted the chili powder. I wasn't sure how it would taste with the other spices. It was very tasty. Thanks for posting.

      Good stew! I used 2 lb of stew meat, 1 personal spicy v8, 1 can tomato soup, and the rest water. I might a few more spices next time like bay leaves. Thanks for the recipe, Kellie!

      This was a tasty stew, however next time I think I will use tomato soup instead of vegetable juice.
