Smoky Chipotle Beef Stew is a bowl of stew that you won’t be able to put down! Classic, tender, melt-in-your-mouth pieces of beef and potatoes are met with a smoky, chipotle beef broth that will take your tastebuds for a ride. I topped my stew with fresh cilantro, creamy avocado, a dollop of sour cream and a sprinkle of cheddar cheese. Dig on in with a spoon or crispy tortilla chips for a little bit of crunch!
Trust me, you are going to want this stew bubbling away on your stove top! As a result, your house will be filled with memorable aromas of a beef stew, but then a kick from the chipotle. It’s almost like a chili and a beef stew combined! But, we are leaving out the tomato base and beans. Big, tender chunks of beef stew meat are clearly the star of the show in this recipe. Having baby Yukon gold potatoes to accompany the beef was not in question at all. I tossed in some chopped red bell pepper to add a little something extra and it was the perfect match!
Now, let’s talk about the broth. Liquid smoke and chipotle powder seriously take this stew broth to the next level. The liquid smoke helps give it a depth of flavor that you would think it would take hours of cooking to get. Chipotle powder adds a subtle heat that keeps you going back for more. It is a match made in heaven. This beef stew broth is velvety and rich and best mopped up with chunky bread or crunchy tortilla chips.
