2 Red bell peppers
5 Green anaheim chiles
1/4 cup Sunflower oil
1 lb Venison, cut into 1 1/2 inch cubes
1 Onion, diced
3 Garlic cloves, finely chopped
2 Carrots, sliced
3 cup Cooked Indian hominy
8 cup Water
1 1/2 tsp Salt
1 tsp White pepper
1 cup Tumbleweed greens, thoroughly cleaned, or curly endive
Roast the peppers, then peel, seed, and cut into long strips. Roast
the chiles, then peel, seed, devein and dice.

Heat the oil in a large stew pot over medium-high heat. When the oil
is almost smoking, add the venison and cook until the meat is lightly
browned, 3 to 5 minutes. Add the onion and garlic and saute 2
minutes more.

Stir in the carrots, peppers, and chiles and cook 1 minute more. Add
the hominy, water, salt, and pepper and bring the mixture ot a boil.
Reduce the heat to low and let the stew simmer 1 1/2 hours, stirring
occasionally to prevent burning, until the meat is very tender. Just
before serving, add the tumbleweed greens, stir 1 minute and spoon
into bowls. *****

prepare the stew now, I can vividly remember the tapping of his
traditional water drum and the songs he chanted in his native Apache
tongue. Through his songs, he asked for all people to walk in harmony
with Mother Earth and be guided by the spirit of the mountains and
the spirit of his drum. I still remember the sincerity and yearning
of his songs.

Depending on what type of produce was available, the ingredients
added to the venison varied each time the stew was prepared. This
recipe includes the basics of the stew, but you can substitute other
