    1. 1
      Here's what to do to git fixin'.
    2. 2
      Chop the onion.
    3. 3
      Brown ground chuck and chopped onion together over medium heat.
    4. 4
      Stir a few times while browning.
    5. 5
      This browning is gonna take about 15 minutes.
    6. 6
      While the chuck and onion are browning, drain the potatoes and cut 'em up into chunky pieces (not too small).
    7. 7
      Also, drain the kidney beans.
    8. 8
      Just set these taters and beans aside and wait, you'll need 'em shortly.
    9. 9
      Also, go ahead and open (But DO NOT drain) the corn and the can of tomatoes with chilies to have 'em ready.
    10. 10
      When chuck and onion have browned, drain 'em real good into a big ol' strainer, then return 'em to the pan and set it back on the stove.
    11. 11
      Add brown sugar, dash salt, dash pepper, and couple o' dashes of Worcestershire sauce.
    12. 12
      Stir 'em up gently!
    13. 13
      Add drained beans, cut-up potatoes, cream corn, undrained tomatoes w/chilies, and light sour cream.
    14. 14
      Stir 'em up gently!
    15. 15
      Let all this cook in uncovered pan or stew pot over medium heat just until it comes to a low boil, then turn the fire down to low.
    16. 16
      Let everything simmer over the low fire until juices become good and thick (kinda' gravy like).
    17. 17
      You'll need to gently stir the stew occasionally.
    18. 18
      It's ready to eat when the juices get good and thick.
    19. 19
      All this ain't gonna take but 1 hour from the gitgo.
    20. 20
      Serve up in bowls (I suggest puttin' some grated "Mexican cheese" and chopped jalapeno peppers on the table and use 'em fer toppin's) While this stew is a rib-stickin' meal in itself, feel free to eat it along with a green salad and cornbread.
    21. 21
      Refrigerate or freeze leftovers and enjoy 'em again sometimes.
    22. 22
      Thank the Good Lord, and chow down, pardners!

      I love this stuff! I use fresh potatoes instead and throw it all in the crock pot with a side of cornbread.. Thanks PawPaw!

      This was very easy to put together. I liked the use of canned potatoes. (I had never used them before, and they were both simple and tasty.) One other thing I really liked was the addition of sour cream. However, the dish turned out much too sweet.

      This is delicious! It's a bit spicy, but can be tamed down by replacing the tomatoes w/green chiles with a can of diced tomatoes. This was great with cornbread! Yummie! Thanks PawPaw!
