    Rita~'s Note:

    This thick, hearty soup is started with the trilogy of onions, celery, and carrots are sautéed before adding the liquid as to bring out there sweetness. Made with a nice meaty ham bone for lots of flavor. A chipotle pepper in adobo sauce for a nice spiciness.

      Rita has done it again! This was so flavorful and hearty! I love the just right heat from the chipotle. I didn't change a thing (and won't next time either!) Thanks for a real keeper!

      Divine. Made this stew in a crockpot by first sauteing the trilogy and adding it to the other indredients (water, spices, lentils, rice, and tomatoes,in that order). Set it on high and came home 6 hours later to a wonderful lunch. To adjust for the longer cooking time, I used short grain brown (rather than white) rice. Since I did not have a ham bone handy I used two ham boullion cubes. As for the stew itself,it was rich and filling. A bit spicy with a good smokey flavor from the chipotle. The French lentils were also nice in that they didn't break up as a regular green lentil might. Thanks Rita.

      This stew has wonderful flavor. The only change I made was using 4 small smoked ham hocks instead of a meaty ham bone, because it's all I could get. The ham hocks didn't provide meat - just great smoked flavor, but we didn't miss the meat at all. The stew is very filling, has just the right amount of heat from the chipotle, and the smoky goodness from the smoked meat and the chipotle put it over the top. DH and DS both raved about it. Thanks for sharing a winner!
