Spicy Black Bean, Chicken, and Corn Stew

Submitted by: Suzanne McMinn on August 2, 2010

Easy comfort food in a pot.

Servings: varies   Prep Time: 10 minutes   Cook Time: all day simmer  


5 cups black beans, cooked
2 cups chicken, cooked and shredded
2 cups fresh or thawed frozen corn kernels
1 cup sliced bell peppers
1 quart canned tomatoes
4 teaspoons chipotle chili powder
2 tablespoons minced dried onions
2 tablespoon crushed red pepper flakes
1 tablespoon seasoned salt
1 teaspoon garlic powder
4 teaspoons lime juice


Put everything in a big pot and heat it up. You’ll need some additional liquid to make the stew. I included all the liquid from the quart of tomatoes. I also included a small amount of cooking liquid from the beans, but not much, maybe about a cup. I added about 6 cups of water. This doesn’t have to be exact, just add enough liquid to get to a stew-like consistency.

I used a big cast iron kettle. You could also simmer this all day in a crock pot.
