      This has all the right ingredients, I think it is just a matter of spicing it to your liking. We added tabasco and lemon at the table and doubled the paprika (I used smoked). I also tried to make it easier and more suited to our tastes, so skipped the egg and used canned garbanzos (with crisped bacon - but less - to top it). The Spanish flavor definitely shines through, which is really nice. I thought the serving size was appropriate; we ate this as a meal.

      A little dissapointed with this stew. I like all the ingredientes...I like Penelope Casas as a chef but the stew was bland. I waited an extra day to review it since stews are usually better the next day but still. It is good but just to make it once ( in my case). Also, other than 6 servings it is more like 10 -12 .

      Outstanding! This has a nice complexity of flavors that keeps it from being bland even though there aren't a lot of spices in it. Like most stews, this was even better the next day. Definitely a keeper!
