We found this recipe one day when browsing on Annie Eats. It looked like such a hearty and warming meal perfect for the cooling fall weather. It is full of delicious and healthy ingredients and really leaves you feeling satisfied after the meal. As always we added a little extra spice to this. We forgot to buy the green chilis and the flavor of the stew was still amazing, but we still included them in the recipe because we feel they would still be a good addition and add even more flavor.
