"I found this recipe on Epicurious, and it really caught my eye. I love the way the chipotles give the stew a light smokiness. It's almost as if it were prepared over a campfire. And of course, anything spicy is definitely good!"

Delish Sue! The only change I made was to sub corn for the hominy because hominy it`s impossible to find were I'm at. Can't wait to try it with hominy, since I really like it.

This had great flavour! I did modify the recipe to fit what I had on hand and did not add the hominy. It cooked up beautifully and was fantastic served over basmati rice. I will definitely be making this again. Thanks for a great recipe!
