I found this out of Ladies Home Journal and thought it looked good so decided to try it. I'm glad I did, it was delicious and a big hit at Super Bowl party. I followed the recipe pretty much exactly except I added 3 cans of chicken broth instead of 1. I like my stews on the thin side.

This is very good. I made exactly except I didn't have black beans or corn. Next time I will have both and use as one reviewer states, use country style ribs.

this is absolutely delicious! if you use boneless, country style ribs, it is much easier. also, add some extra tomatillos about 1 hr. before serving. i like a brothier stew, so it's good not to add the corn meal. way to go crisychick. you've done it again!!!
