I said I'd tell you how the stew was. I assumed it would be more of a hit... I mean, you're only supposed to share really good recipes on here, right? Well, you are at a different kind of blog, my friend.
The stew was ok. It was pretty cumin-y and has a pretty good kick of heat, too (who woulda thought two cans of diced tomatoes with diced green chilies could do all that?). Then I added shredded cheddar cheese and crushed-up saltines, and it was pretty excellent.
Considering the easiness of the recipe and the cheapness of the ingredients, I'd make it again for myself. But - since I'm cooking for two, and my other half was fairly certain he didn't love it - this recipe will probably be retired.
