Crock Pot Chile Colorado

READY IN: 5hrs 20mins
Recipe by davianng

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!
