Soup's on - Mexican Style! Turn on your slow cooker and cook up a flavorful Mexican Stew to serve up to family and friends. Pair it with a side of homemade cornbread, and you've got a real good feast on your hands!

What You'll Need:
  • 3 pounds stew beef
  • 3 tablespoons canola oil, divided
  • 6 tablespoons tomato paste
  • 2 (10-1/2-ounce) cans condensed beef broth, undiluted
  • 1 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 6 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 1 tablespoon chili powder
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons ground cumin
  • 6 tablespoons chopped picked jalapenos
  • 1 cup water
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 2 tablespoons cold water
  • Chopped fresh cilantro
  • Sour cream
What To Do:
  1. Cut larger pieces of stew beef into bite-sized pieces. Heat 2 tablespoons oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat; add half the beef, and cook 8 minutes or until browned on all sides. Repeat with remaining oil and beef.

  2. Place meat in a 5-quart slow cooker. Add tomato paste, beef broth, and next 6 ingredients. Stir well to blend.

  3. Cover and cook on LOW setting 7 hours or until meat is very tender.

  4. Combine cornstarch and water in a small bowl.  Add to slow cooker; increase heat to HIGH setting, and cook, uncovered, 15 minutes or until thickened, stirring several times.  Top stew with chopped cilantro, and serve with sour cream.

Mexican Street Corn

Corn on the cob is one of those street foods that's really trendy right now, and one of the most popular ways to serve it is in a style known as Mexican Street Corn. In our version, we slather corn on the cob with butter before topping with a bit of chili powder, cilantro, Cotija cheese, and a squeeze of lime. It's tasty!
