    davianng's Note:

    I got this recipe from a small Kitchen Bouquet pamphlet in the '70's. It is one of my favorites when the craving for Mexican comes over me! Fairly easy to put together, and smells wonderful while cooking. Not "hot" spicy, but very savory.

      We might be living in Southern California, but neither of us have any idea of what Chile Colorado should taste like! What we do know is that this recipe makes for a great tasting stew, spicy but not too hot for us! That's how I served it during the initial go-around, then later, as leftovers, we had it with tortillas! Very, very nice, & thanks so much for posting the recipe!

      It wasn't exactly the chile colorado that I remember from my childhood in Southern California, but it was quite good, especially after adding maybe 1/3 of a small can of jalapenos to give it some heat. Hubby liked it too! I might cook it again, but then again, maybe I'll test out some of the other versions.

      I put this together after raiding the chilli and tomatoe patch in my garden. I used fresh chillis that I chared and skinned, an assortment of colors and flavors. I used fresh tomatoes chopped up, probably more then asked for. I ran out of time to use the crockpot, so I simmered on the stove top for a couple of hours or more. After all the simmering I didn't feel the need to add the butter, flour and more kitchen bouquet. The flavor was good the texture was lovely. Thank you for posting this heart warming stew.
