It contains garden vegetables and the chicken, supposedly anything gypsys can swipe. The stew is eaten with tortillas, bread slabs or old bread crusts. The sherry, spices and onion aromas of the cooking stew heavily whets anybody's appetite on a cold day. How we love to open our warm Wyoming cabin door in the evening after a day of antelope hunting and smell this stew that has been simmerig while we were out!Don't be shocked at the amount of ingredients used. The recipe is from a ranch wife who knows how to royally feed a branding crew. Scale down the recipe for your family. Use leftover freezer "mystery meat", cook a big stew and freeze some finished stew later for another day. (I do not recommend this stew be made nor reheated stew be used at elk camp. It is too aromatic for hunting clothing.)One whole chicken fryer plus 4-5 extra breasts (substitute four pounds of game meat).6 yellow onions peeled and quartered15 garlic cloves, peeled and halved (not chopped)1-2 quarts of sweet cocktail sherry (do not use cooking sherry which may have sulfites and salts)16 ounces of chicken broth (chicken broth is also good for game)4 1/2 cups of roasted, peeled fresh chilies or one 16-ounce can of Hatch Green ChiliesTwo 24-ounce cans of whole tomatoes (or six to eight fresh tomatoes)1 pound of Monterey Jack Cheese - bulk block is better than shreddedCooking Method: Tear the tomatoes apart with a fork and cut chilies into chunks. Marinate both in a large bowl with their juices mingling while the chicken is cooking.Place the washed chicken, onions, half of the sherry and the broth in a large covered pot or Dutch oven. Add more water or broth if necessary to cover the chicken. SIMMER SLOWLYfor 1-1 1/2 hours. Important Note: This stew is never supposed to boil. The spice and sherry character will change for the worse with boiling as the sherry sugars caramelize.Remove chicken, cool, separate meat from bone, chunk the meat and return it to the pot. Add the previously marinated tomatoes and chilies and SIMMER all for about an hour. Add the remaining sherry just before serving.Serving: Shred or cut small chunks of Monterey Jack cheese into the bottom of each person's bowl. Ladle in the stew while hot, making sure each person gets some of each ingredient. Eat with spoons by scraping a small blob of melted cheese in the bowl bottom with each spoonful. Eat with a warmed, rolled tortilla or crusty bread in the left hand to “dig” for cheese as you spoon-eat the stew.Bonne Appetite!
