Try adding black beans for more heft and garnishing with chopped fresh cilantro, avacado and a dollop of sour cream.

  • One 10-ounce package frozen sweet corn
  • 2 celery stalks, chopped
  • 1 onion, sliced into thick rounds
  • 2 carrots, cut into chunks

Chicken Stew Shopping Tip

As an alternative to sugary, salty, processed foods, try shopping for fruits and vegetables that are in season.

Chicken Stew Cooking Tip

For a healthier alternative, substitute honey or molasses for sugar in baking recipes, and use a 3:1 blend of canola oil to olive oil instead of butter when cooking over the flame.
