Recipe by ratherbeswimmin

Fresh poblano peppers are pretty mild in flavor but are delicious. This is an uncomplicated stew recipe that can cook all day in your slow-cooker.

This recipe is exceptional! Very flavorful and I will make this again and again.
Because of removing the seeds from the jalopeno, this stew is NOT spicy hot. If you want a "kick" to it, you may want to leave a few seeds from that jalopeno. This was my first time using poblano peppers -- loved the flavor. And I kept the cinnamon stick exactly as the recipe calls ... didn't really taste it (specifically), but won't omit anything. Hope this helps folks.
