Today is my Sisters Birthday and it’s Mystery Dish day! This means it’s a perfect day to share a delicious, warm chicken chili stew, right?!
I love my crock pot. I happen to currently have two. You can never have too many slow cookers, right?! When I saw Zainab from Blahnik Baker‘s ingredients for this month’s Mystery Dish, I knew stew was in the works. Her ingredients?
Green tea or matcha powder
Prickly pear cactus
I gotta be honest, some of these ingredients tripped me up. Matcha powder? Cardamom? Prickly Pear? Not in my usual repretoire. I really really wanted to get creative and make some awesome prickly pear something-or-other, but when it came down to it, I totally chickened out.
But that’s okay because this stew was really good. I’m pretty sure my family appreciated it more than some prickly pear something-or-other anyway. The tender chicken, hearty potatoes, corn and beans really made this a comforting meal. Especially since the weather is cooling down over here. Nothing like coming home to a crock pot full of chicken chili stew!
