Wonderful recipe Amanda Beth, thank you for putting this one together! I used ground sirloin so there wasnt much grease left in my pan. Prefer V8 to tomato juice, omitted the green pepper, and didnt need the additional water. Left the skins on the potatoes and used mild chunky salsa. So easy to make this stew and with items I usually have on hand. Great flavor, love the bit of zip in the sauce, and the corn adds just a little crunch. Will be making this again!
