I only gave it the 4 stars, because I did a bit of alteration. I made it with what I had on hand and missed out on the fresh ingredients. I subed a can of Rotelle chiles and tomatoes for the peppers and tomatoes. I didn't have any fresh cilantro or lime. Even with these poor subs, it was a tasty winter stew. I'm looking forward to making it with all the fresh veggies. I also added some leftover beans and peas for extras. I think any veggie would be good.
