Stir into stew in cooker. Cover and cook 15 minutes longer. Stir in cilantro just before serving. Serve with Fry Bread and cheese as directed above.

Fry Bread

Directions

  1. In a large bowl stir together all-purpose flour, corn meal, salt, and baking powder. With a pastry blender cut in shortening until mixture is the consistency of small peas. Add water and snipped fresh cilantro all at once and stir just until dough forms a ball (dough will be slightly sticky). Divide dough into 6 portions. On a floured surface, roll each portion to a 7-inch circle. In a heavy 10-inch skillet heat shortening over medium heat. Fry one dough circle at a time for 2 to 3 minutes per side or until golden brown, turning once; add additional shortening as needed. If fry breads begin to brown too quickly, reduce heat to medium-low.
