Chipotle Beef Stew

"I found this recipe on Epicurious, and it really caught my eye. I love the way the chipotles give the stew a light smokiness. It's almost as if it were prepared over a campfire. And of course, anything spicy is definitely good!"

    Made this exactly except that I used pork, a cup more water, and added cilantro. We ate it like pozole. Very spicy!!! We added a squirt of lime, radish, and cabbage. My daughter ate it as a burrito to tame the heat.

    Very good. I had no hominy and meant to sub in corn but forgot. This made a great, warming stew served over mashed potatoes and mashed yams. Thanks for posting this.

    WWWWWWonderful! This is definitely gonna be a regular in my house. I browned the meat w/onions and garlic and put it and everything else except the hominy in the slowcooker for 8 hours and then the hominy and the end. The meat was sooo tender. I never used hominy in anything else except pozole and it was real good. Infact next time I think I'll add two cans!
