You can practically smell the campfire with this classic cowboy stew, with pork and vegetables simmered with chiles and creamy corn hominy.

  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano leaves

Tips from the Pillsbury Kitchens

  • tip 1
    Two types of corn kernels flavor this stew - yellow sweet corn, and white hominy. Hominy is one of the first foods to which European settlers were introduced by native Americans; it is corn kernels which have had their hull and germ removed. Hominy is popular in soups and stews, and ground hominy is used for grits.
  • tip 2
    This stew comes together quickly once prep is complete. For fast weeknight cooking, cut, chop and mince the ingredients in advance; refrigerate them separately until you are ready to assemble the stew.
