Cook Time


  • 4 scallions
  • 2 lb. beef stew meat
  • 2 tbsp. all-purpose flour
  • minced
  • rinsed, drained
  • 1 (28-ounce) can diced tomatoes
  • 1 (15-ounce) can tomato sauce
  • 1 tbsp. chili powder

  • 1 tsp. salt
  • from 16-ounce package, thawed
  • from 12-ounce package, thawed

Chop white and light-green parts of scallions; slice remaining dark-green parts. Reserve. Toss beef with flour. Coat large pot with cooking spray; heat over medium heat. Add beef in batches; cook about five minutes per batch or until browned, turning and re-coating pot with cooking spray as needed. Set aside on plate.

In beef drippings, cook garlic and reserved chopped scallions 30 seconds. Add beef with any accumulated juices, beans, tomatoes, sauce, chili powder, cumin, and salt. Bring to a boil; reduce heat to low. Cover; cook three hours or until meat is tender, adding green beans and corn during last five minutes. Stir in cheese and cilantro; sprinkle with reserved sliced scallions. Serve with sour cream and chips.
