Karina's New Mexican Stew with Ground Turkey + Green Chiles
Dust off the slow cooker.
Looking for a simple but truly fabulous slow cooker stew recipe to warm you up? Here is one my all time faves. A New Mexican style stew with budget-friendly ground turkey spiked with roasted green chiles, lime, and cilantro. Butternut squash and potatoes round out the spicier flavors. Make it as mild or as spicy as your taste buds prefer. It's perfect comfort food for any time of year. We serve it with my favorite gluten-free corn muffin recipe.
