Spicy Chicken and Black Bean Stew

 Let's enjoy some spicy stew today, shall we? 

 This is a favorite winter time mug that I bought at Kroger several years ago, along with the matching plates.

Spicy Chicken and Black Bean Stew

This is a quick recipe that I clipped from the newspaper, and was submitted by Melissa D'Arabian, and adapted by me. It looks like a long list of ingredients, but it's ready to eat in no time.

INGREDIENTS:

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 1 stalk celery, chopped
  • 2 medium carrots, peeled and chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tablespoons chipotles in adobo sauce, finely chopped (or tomato paste and some chilipowder, if less spice is desired)
  • 2 cups low-sodium chicken broth
  • 1 and 1/2 cups hot water
  • 1-15 oz. can black beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1 cup frozen corn, thawed, or 1 can or corn, drained
  • 2 cups shredded cooked chicken
  •  make a slurry of about 1/2 cup cold water and 2-3 tablespoons of cornstarch
  • 2 tablespoons lime juice
  • salt and pepper
  • avocodo, cilantro, grated cheese, and lime wedges, for garnishing

INSTRUCTIONS:

  1. In a large heavy pot over medium-high heat, heat the oil. Add the onion, celery, and carrots and cook about five minutes, until they start getting tender.
  2. Add the garlic and chipotles, then stir for about 1 minute.
  3. Add the stock, water, beans, corn, and chicken and bring to a simmer. Add the water/cornstarch slurry and stir. Reduce the heat to medium-low and simmer for 10 minutes.
  4. Stir in the lime juice and season with salt and pepper, if needed.
  5. Ladle into serving bowls, and garnish with avocado, chopped cilantro, shredded cheese, and lime wedges.
  6. NOTE: Leftover chipotles can be spooned out onto a waxed paper lined cookie sheet, in individual clumps, with a little sauce, and then frozen. When frozen, store the chipotles in freezer proof bags. Use when needed, when a little heat is desired.

  7. Hi Kitty...I guess there's Tea in that mug?!? That would be an interesting addition to Tea, wouldn't it? Had a tea recently at a local hotel and many items were spicy. Thanks for linking to Tuesday Cuppa Tea.

  10. I don't do spicy, but I think that tray looks very special. Doing better with presentation for myself is rising in priority. Sometimes meals are so lacking in the "special" department that I can't remember if I ate!

I make something similar, but we call it Chicken Tortilla soup, and throw in sour cream, cheddar cheese, and crushed tortilla chips on top... it is yummy :) Always enjoy your recipes, they are just down-home yummy goodness :) Hugs to you today!

  21. Oh boy, does that ever look scrumptious, Kitty! We have snow in the forecast for tomorrow, so I'm running out for groceries today. I will add some of these ingredients to my shopping list.
    How pretty the eyelet pattern of your basket tray liner picks up the snowflake pattern on your cute cup & plate. Again, very comforting looking. You do a wonderful job of setting up cozy spot!

  28. This looks perfect for a cold day. The spice should really warm things up. We are so cold in Missouri which is ridiculous because it is much warmer here in the winter. We walk around saying "I think I'll put another sweater on". It is the dampness that does it so we need some of your lovely soup! And then have a nice mug of hot cinnamon spice tea! Yum! Thanks for sharing.

  33. Kitty, what's not to love about that! Except, for me, the garlic (a most unfortunate allergy to have!). This sounds like something we are going to love.
