Looking for a stew recipe to keep you WARM on these cold days and nights? Try this poblano beef stew that has a little bit of kick to it. 

Poblano Beef Stew

This past weekend we celebrated Shaun’s (my husband) 30th BIRTHDAY!  I’d say it went off without a hitch, as we watched football on a big projector screen, drank lots of beer and ate lots of great food.  Not to mention all the family and friends that came out to wish him and his twin brother a happy birthday.  It was a good night indeed and he enjoyed it all!  Olivia even had a good time showing off her little baby steps that she has started to take around the house.  (We are up to about 10-12 steps.)

After all the dip, chips, sausage meatballs, burgers and beer — I need to detox.  Oh, I forgot to mention the birthday meal we had for lunch on Sunday at Logan’s Roadhouse.  Detox diet starts TODAY and I am showcasing this easy crock pot stew recipe.  One of my favorite things about cold weather is making stews or soups to help warm you up.  I usually tend to eat my soups with cornbread but this go round I wanted a tortilla.  It may not be the wisest choice regarding the detox but one won’t hurt me.


I told you I had another crock pot recipe coming your way and this one won’t disappoint!

Enjoy ~ Meagan

    Ooooh this looks so awesome. Can we get a round of applause for poblano peppers? They make everything amazing. I just posted a chili today too but I will have to try this one next. There is NEVER too much chili/stew in the fall.
