Southwest Style Beef Stew

As promised here’s another tasty recipe for you! I fixed this one for supper just the other night and it was soooo good; I ate way too much. We had some fresh hot cornbread with it and a little honey butter for the cornbread; that small sweet touch went really well with the spicy stew.
