This is a family favorite I grew up eating. It is very simple to make and it never disappoints.

  • 1

    lb ground beef

  • 1/2

    large Onion, chopped

  • 2

    Cloves Garlic, chopped

  • 1

    can corn, DO NOT DRAIN

  • 1

    can stewed tomatoes, cut up tomatoes with kitchen shears

  • 1

    can ranch style beans, also known as chili beans

  • 2

    Tbsp Chili Powder (this gives it flavor)

  • 2

    tsp cumin

  • 1

    tsp salt

  • pinch cayenne, (make it as spicy or mild as you like)

  • 4-5

    small potatoes, peeled and chunked

  • Fresh Pepper, 5 - 10 twists

  • 3 -4

    Cans of water

Directions

In a heavy soup pot, cook ground beef until almost no pink remains; strain and rinse meat in a colander (this step can be omitted if using lean ground beef). Return meat to the soup pot. Add onions, and garlic and saute for 3-5 minutes or until onions and garlic are opaque. Add salt, chili powder, cumin, cayenne pepper, pepper, corn, beans, tomatoes, and 3 Cans of water. Bring to a boil. Drop in potatoes and cook 10-20 minutes or until potatoes are fork tender but do not fall apart. When the potatoes are done, taste the stew and add more salt if needed. Serve with Saltine crackers or cornbread Tip: *Add salt before you boil the potatoes to give them more flavor, then you can add more salt to the soup since the potatoes will absorb the salt. *If you are going to freeze it, do not overcook the potatoes because they will cook when you reheat the stew.
