An interesting twist on meat and potatoes, this stew is great accompanied by fresh tortillas or bread and a salad. Adjust the chili to turn up (or down) the heat!

3 Potatoes Medium diced
1/2 cup Onion sliced
1 Garlic clove minced
2 teaspoons Salt
6 Green Chili Peppers

I brown the meat first, add the water with a little chicken bouillon dissolved in it, simmer a couple of hours and then add a can of Rotel tomatoes and simmer some more. Last, add a couple of potatoes, peeled and diced and simmer another 20 minutes...easy and good!
