If its time to add a little excitement to your dinner table, print this recipe right now. This Mexican-inspired stew is packed with flavor, protein and a zip sure to take the boredom out of your dinner routine.

What You'll Need:
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 3 pounds boneless beef round or chuck steak, cut into 1-inch chunks
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup salsa
  • 1 cup beef broth
  • 2 medium zucchini, cut into 1/2-inch chunks
  • 1 (15-ounce) can black beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1 (8-3/4-ounces) can whole-kernel corn, drained
  • 2 tablespoons corn starch
  • 3 tablespoons water
What To Do:
  1.  In a soup pot, heat the oil over medium-high heat until hot; add the beef and brown evenly. Drain off the liquid, add the salt, salsa, and broth, and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to low, cover, and simmer for 1 to 1-1/4 hours, or until the beef is tender.
  2. Add the zucchini, beans, and corn; cook for 15 to 20 minutes. Dissolve the cornstarch in the water and add to the stew. Cook for 1 minute, or until thickened, stirring constantly.
Serving Tip
