    My favorite way to eat this stew is paired with short grain brown rice personally cooked in your rice cooker. OHHHH I am about to go make another batch of this!

    What’s great about this recipe, is that you can add whatever veggies, beans, or grains you have in your kitchen. Next time I’m adding more beans like kidney and black. Quinoa or brown rice would also be a delicious addition.
