black bean and corn stew


  • 1 Tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 4 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 teaspoons ground cumin
  • 1 4 oz. can chopped green chiles
  • 2 15 oz cans black beans, drained and rinsed
  • 2 14.5 oz cans diced tomatoes
  • 1 teaspoons salt
  • 10 oz package frozen corn


  • In a large saucepan, heat oil over medium heat. Add onion; cook until softened, 5 to 6 minutes. Add garlic and cumin; cook, stirring often, until fragrant, about 2 minutes more.
  • To the pan, add chiles, beans, tomatoes and their juice, 2 cups water, and 3/4 teaspoon salt. Bring mixture to a boil; reduce heat to medium-low, and simmer, partially covered, until slightly thickened, about 20 minutes.
  • In a blender or food processor, puree 2 cups of the stew. Return the puree to the pan (I used a stick blender and just pulsed a little here and there), and add frozen corn; simmer until heated through, about 5 minutes. Serve hot.

I got this recipe from Jessica at Small Time Cooks. It’s a great blog. Check it out. She recommends serving the stew with cornbread or tortilla chips…I think it would also be great with a little cheese and/or sour cream. It’s also a great alternative to chili for baked potatoes and chili boats. Hopefully, my group likes it as much as I do.
