Stews are a great way to blend veggies with meat and with spices that match the type of food you are creating. Usually stews are prepared with meats that are a little tougher and that need long cooking times to help break down all the connective tissues that make the meat hard in the first place. Making any stew recipe is not too complicated since all the ingredients cook in one cooking vessel whether that is a slow cooker or a durable pot with a thick bottom. Usually you will brown the meat to seal in the flavor and once you have done that the rest of the ingredient sand spices get placed in the pot and everything takes a slow and long cooking time to make sure all the flavors blend to a wonderful mix. Stews are not only tasty but they are great candidates for keeping in the freezer and if you store them properly can stay at least a month or more in the freezer without causing any problems to the dish. Just always make sure to store it properly and try to get out as much air as possible before sealing them up.Mexican flavors are great for stew since they are predominantly on the spicier side and go great with a lovely rice.
