This is one delicious stew, a five for the awesome aroma alone! Love the change of pace flavor the adobo seasoning and the jalapeno added to this lovely stew. Not only will I be making this again but will definitely be using more of the adobo seasoning. Thank you Derf.

This was a delicious stew. I enjoyed the adobo seasoning which made it different from other stews I've made. I did omit the jalapeno pepper. Thanks for a great meal.
