  • Incredible!

    Super delicious! In regards to quantity, it made 4-5 quarts of stew. The serving size used for the calculation must be 2 or even 2.5 cups. Really way more stew than needed for 2 people, but it tasted so good that the leftovers disappeared within a few days. I didn't even have to freeze any of it. - 12/13/08

    I would absolutely make this again! My thirteen-year-old brother who hates anything green and anything spicy, cleaned his plate and even served himself seconds. I served it with brown rice and it was incredibly filling. I added two tbsps of peanut butter, which helped bring out the peanut taste. - 1/10/09

    This is very tasty stew. Personally, I think it could be a little spicier, so next time I will up the heat level a bit.
    I will definitely make this again.
