“I worked with Kim when I first came to Arkansas. Her husband was in the military and she had to move away, but she will be remembered for her great Mexican Stew. She would bring a full crockpot to the office and we would all enjoy this for lunch. This can be made in a regular soup pot on the stove (cook less time) or in the crock pot. It makes a lot so you need a large pot or crockpot.”
