Make the Most of This Recipe With Tips From The Betty Crocker® Kitchens
Two types of corn kernels flavor this stew - yellow sweet corn, and white hominy. Hominy is one of the first foods to which European settlers were introduced by native Americans; it is corn kernels which have had their hull and germ removed. Hominy is popular in soups and stews, and ground hominy is used for grits.
Make-Ahead Tip
This stew comes together quickly once prep is complete. For fast weeknight cooking, cut, chop and mince the ingredients in advance; refrigerate them separately until you are ready to assemble the stew.
