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.
this was good but i could have done without the cinnamon stick.HTH
We loved it! I used meat from a smoked pork shoulder which added an extra dimension to the flavor. I also did not have any cinnamon sticks so just left it out. I also had to substitute the jalapeno with a bell pepper bc I was out. I will definitely be making this one again! It was AWESOME and with no jalapeno even my 2 and 4 year could eat, and enjoy it! I served it with a salad and garlic knots. YUM! YUM! YUM!!!!
Another winning crockpot recipe from NurseDi! Didn't change a thing except that I left out the cinnamon sticks (out of them). This is pretty mild but it will be very easy to adjust the heat by just subbing in other (hotter) peppers. I used anaheim peppers which may be a bit milder than the ones suggested in the ingredients. Thanks for sharing this keeper!
