Chrissy Teigen Vegetable Stew with Homemade Tortilla Strips & Le Creuset

Chrissy Teigen – Vegetable Stew

Guys, I cannot put Chrissy Teigen’s Cravings cookbook down. I’ve never made so many recipes from one single source until I bought Cravings. This “Chili” is packed with flavor and plenty of spice. It’s perfect for a chilly rainy or winter day. My heartburn doesn’t agree with me after this meal, but I can’t stop.
