Spanish Stew - Beverly E.'s recipe

Beth M.


Beverly E. is a friend from church, who visits from N.J. during the summer months. She made this for a church luncheon recently. It is so good and a very tasty change from the usual beef stew I make. I made it before she e-mailed me the actual recipe, and it was fine; but this is the recipe which I think was delicious when I had it at the luncheon.
My husband enjoyed it, and it is even better the second day!
