Today's Special: Vegetarian Tortilla Stew

Mar 15 2007 - 8:57am


I love it when I find a recipe that incorporates an ingredient in a way that I had never thought of using it before. Like using lemonade concentrate to make lemon cookies [1] or enchilada sauce as the base of a tortilla stew as this recipe does. This is a great versatile stew to have in your repertoire because you can easily enhance and tweak it to your liking. Throw in a can of black beans and some diced potatoes for a heartier meal, or garnish with grated pepper jack cheese, fresh salsa, and sour cream for an impromptu Mexican themed fiesta. Take a peek at the recipe,
