Lazy Girl's Lunch

I used to call this "canned stew" but it only confused people. Read the recipe and you will see why.

This pairs well with cornbread and a handful of shredded cheese.

Lazy Girl's Lunch

1 onion, diced
Coupla cloves of garlic, cut into small chunks
Oil
2 carrots, if you are feeling enthusiastic, diced
Chili powder, salt and cumin to taste
1 can kidney beans, drained
1 can garbanzo beans, drained
1 can corn kernels, drained
1 can diced tomatoes

Saute the onion in the oil for about 5 minutes - enough oil to cover the bottom of the pan generously. If you are using the carrots, throw them in and saute them for a while, too - maybe 5 minutes or while you are opening all the cans. Toss in the spices and saute for 2 minutes or so.

Add all the cans of ingredients. Bring to a boil, lower heat and simmer until most of the liquid is gone.

Voila. Now you have enough lunch for several good-sized meals, plus some extra to give to a friend.

I've made something similar and added sour cream and fritos to scoop it up with!! Healthy it's not but tastes pretty good!

P.S. I found your when I googled local food bloggers (I'm in Ventura). I recently started one, please check it out! I'd love to trade recipes with a local foodie.

Dear Suebob

Couldn't find your EMAIL address, so posting this as a comment and hoping you read it.

I'm an amateur writter (on-line) about French food. In addition to
French recipes, I write about the culture and history behind French
food. For many of the recipes, I also write about the history behind the recipe.

I'm writting to ask if you would consider adding this to your list of food sites. The address is:

Thank you for your time and consideration.

Best regards,
Doug Stewart
