This tasted great, but was kind of more like a soup than a stew; lots of liquid. The meat was nice and tender. I halved the amount of chili powder and used fresh garlic instead of powder. I added some cilantro, too. We garnished with dallops of light sour cream, shredded cheddar and more cilantro. Thanx for posting. I'll make this again with the little changes I mentioned.
