Green Chile Chicken Stew
YUMMY! I lived for many years in NM, this is close to my *comfort food* green chili chicken stew! I omit the habanero & use a cup of fresh roasted Hatch green chili. I am sometimes lazy & use a rotisserie chicken. Instead of plain stewed tomatoes, I use a can of spicy Ro-Tel. *hint* use masa to thicken instead of flour. Minor change, but OH makes the flavor better! Be sure and serve with fresh, warm tortillas.

Absolutely Ultimate Potato Soup
I made this recipe as written; the only change I made was to use half-n-half instead of heavy cream. I cut the bacon with kitchen shears & cooked in 3 batches while I peeled & chopped the veggies. Still took THREE times as long as stated until completion! Entirely TOO much bacon. Olive oil would have allowed the veggie flavors to show, rather than be masked by bacon. This was not the "Absolute Ultimate" potato soup for me, sorry. I will stick with my own recipe.

Slow Cooker Enchiladas
This is a great base recipe! I added sauted onion & garlic, and 1/2 C chopped green chili to the meat mixture. Quit complaining about using a package of taco seasoning - if you want to be a 'purist,' then add your own chili, garlic, onion, oregano, paprika, cumin, salt, pepper. I'd much rather add one package already mixed for me! I used low-sodium soups, and added a good-sized dollop of sour cream to the soup mixture. Yes, this is a recipe for layered enchiladas, but could be rolled into corn tortillas if one wished. The ease of layering enchiladas, however, is great!
