Taco Stew

Cindy Klingensmith


I came up with this version when I didn't have all the ingredients for another recipe. You can only adjust a recipe so much before it becomes a new recipe. You can add another can of broth if this is too thick to make it more of a soup consistency.

I can honestly say I've never had a "stewp" before... and it turns out I like them! This cross between a stew and a soup has just the right amount of spices for my taste. I am a huge fan of Mexican food (and stewps, apparently) so give this two thumbs up! The Test Kitchen
