Simple, uncomplicated, and very filling. I used 4 bouillon cubes and didn't need to add additional salt. Added 1 teaspoon chili powder and 1/2 teaspoon pepper. My point calculator says 1 serving is 1 WW pt, although I think I ate more than 1 serving :-)Thanks Dreamgoddess.
A very good recipe! I added one medium potato .. My husband liked it as well .. thanks!
I woke up to a rainy day, and decided this would be a perfect dinner. And, it was! I forgot to pick up any celery, so I left it out, and I added zuccini and broccoli (stems and flowers) to the crockpot after about 5 hours of cooking. The carrots could have cooked a bit longer, but every other ingredient was done just right. At first, I didn't add any pepper, and thought the stew was lacking flavor. However, a few dashes of black pepper woke it right up, and it was delicious. Thanks for an easy recipe that can be so easily modified! PS: I used 2 cups of chicken broth, and thought the amount of broth was perfect.
