Easy and tasty. Serve with warm flour tortillas and cold beer. This recipe is ours, derived from the many great New Mexican Chilie Stews. Leftovers can be frozen. Alternatively, serve over fried eggs on flour tortillas (Huevos Rancheros)

Excellent stew that is even better the next day. Because there are only three of us, I made half of the recipe and instead of simmering it on the stove top, I put it in the crock pot and let it cook on low for about 8 hours (didn't cook the potatoes ahead of time since I was using the crock pot). Very nice flavor and a nice change from regular beef stew. Thanks for posting this. Made for Zaar Chef Alphabet Soup Tag.
