this recipe is my take on the bumblebee stew from j gumbo’s! it’s a perfect weeknight dinner and i make a large batch to freeze for super simple lunches. i used fresh corn that we got at the pumpkin patch, but you could easily substitute frozen corn and onions to make this really simple. i serve this over basmati rice, garnished with green onions and a dash or two of tabasco! pair it with some great garlic bread and it’s delicious on crisp fall evenings!
