Expert Tips

  • Try serving this stew with cooked white rice.
  • Much of the heat of a chile lives in the seeds and the membranes that hold the seeds. Removing those parts before adding a chile to a recipe will make the dish less spicy. We’ve left them in this recipe to give it some added heat, but you can remove them if you prefer.
