Welcome to Simple Fare, Fairly Simple. This is a place for me to post recipes of all kinds...along with other miscellaneous fodder from my so-called life here in the south. Who knows what you will find here. Could be anything from my husband...known as IT Guy...to my kids and beautiful grandbabies that are growing up way too fast right before my eyes. But...mostly this will be a place for food. I hope you'll see something you like and if you decide to try something from the list...leave me a comment and let me know!

This little crock pot meal just can't get any easier. Throw everything in the crock pot in the morning and let it go all day until dinnertime. Your house will smell amazing! The smell of the green chilies cooking along with the spices will have you smiling! This is especially yummy during those cold winter evenings when you're craving something warm. It's especially good as leftovers the next day. One of IT Guy's favorites!

Green Chili Stew


1 - 1 1/2 pounds beef stew meat
2 15 ounce cans diced tomatoes (I used fire roasted with garlic but regular diced works)
1 4-ounce OR 1 7-ounce can diced green chilies (depending on your preferred heat level...add more if you want)
1 medium onion ~ diced
2 cloves garlic ~ minced (leave out if you're using the fire roasted with garlic...unless you like a LOT of garlic)
1/2 cup water
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1 teaspoon chili powder
1 teaspoon dried oregano
Salt and pepper to taste

Dump everything in the crock pot and simmer on low all day, stirring occasionally.

Serve with heated flour tortillas.

How easy is that?

The stuff.

Throw it all in your crock pot 
and give it a stir. I let mine cook 
on high most of the day because 
my stew meat was a little frozen.

Serve with flour tortillas!!!
