Recipe by shb1964
Just came up with this recipe tonight and it's a one-dish winner. Quick, easy, filling and best of all, really healthy! (If you're not a beer drinker, try chicken broth.) A mandolin slicer made quick work of slicing the onion and potatoes, and I already had shredded carrots on hand. Though I only made it tonight, it's going to be versatile - swapping out types of beans, adding garlic, trying other veggies, topping with shredded cheese, etc. This wasn't a thick chili - that's why I added stew to the title. Leftovers should thicken up a bit. Enjoy!
