Southwestern Vegetable Stew

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by Dissie

Not sure how southwestern authentic this recipe really is, since its one of my mothers and she was raised in WI and lived her adult life in MN. :) But it is tasty. I have added stew meat on several occasions and browned ground beef a time or two and that is delicious also. I have made it without the olives and mushrooms and it was just as tasty. I have even added some drained mexican corn to it for some more color. So as you can see, you can change it up quite a bit! Have fun and hope you enjoy!

I really liked the flavor of this. I used the vegetables I had on hand, which were celery, corn, green beans, carrots and cherry tomatoes. Next time I will omit the carrots and definitely add olives, which I didn't have this time. I also added Morningstar Farms soy crumbles and ended up with a delicious vegan stew that I will make again. What a nice recipe.
