A thick and rich stew that got all thumbs up from my diners! This is a Pampered Chef recipe that I've submitted as it appeared in my cookbook. For visual appeal, next time I'll use cannelini beans rather than pintos. I didn't even attempt to grate the tortillas, I just chopped them up finely; you need them small enough to dissolve & thicken the stew. The poblano peppers add lots of flavor but not much heat. The opportunity to adjust the heat level to your taste will be in your choice of salsa verde. I used a medium-heat salsa and it was just right for us. I also opted not to use the remaining tortillas for chips - I just warmed them & served on the side. Let your tastebuds guide you in your choices!
