  1. WOW Nee! I never think to whip up a nice hearty cabbage stew this time of year. Why oh why I don't know. Thank goodness you posted this recipe because I'm going to the grocery store today and cabbage will be on my list as will pinto beans. I think they probably make a GREAT combination! Yours looks yummy and I'll be pinning it for sure!

    Thanks for sharing, Nee...I hope you're staying warm down there. I just came in from taking Iggy out and it's freezing outside!!!

    1. Good morning Dottie ,
      It's a great stew , and you can make it with diced tomatoes without the chilies . I use diced tomatoes with chilies for the color . Regular is just as good .
