Tia's Spicy Bean Stew

READY IN: 2hrs 20mins
Recipe by Thea

I saw a similar recipe years ago and tweaked it so much that it has become a household staple when I'm in a hurry. You can tone down the heat a bit by using diced tomatoes with green chilis instead of with jalapeno. Also please note that you can heat this on medium heat and then simmer 25-30 minutes if your in a hurry. I tend to let it simmer for a few hours or place in my crockpot. Enjoy!

Definitely 5 star-tasting, and very easy, though you'll have to monitor the water level if you are making it on the stove top (which is how I made it), which makes it strictly a weekend recipe for me. I added about 1/4 cup water three times. I had pickapeppa sauce and hot curry paste, so I couldn't see leaving it out. Since my BF doesn't like spicy that much, I used 1/4 teaspoon of each. I could see using 1/2 teaspoon next time. Instead of canned corn I used frozen. Thanks, this was delicious and BF liked it a lot too. Looking forward to leftovers.

  1. Get ready for easy! Put everything in a sauce pan or crockpot. Mix together. Cook on medium heat, then turn to simmer for 25 - 30 minutes, then low/warm for several hours. Add water as needed. I serve over rice or egg noodles. We have also eaten this "as is" with a hearty french bread for dipping! Is even better the next day!
