I love pulling things from my pantry and freezer and making dinner. This Tex-Mex Stew didn't seem like it would be very good because it uses frozen peppers and onion soup mix, but I was wrong. It takes 5 minutes to prep and about 15 minutes to cook. I didn't even use a fork to eat it, just tortilla chips. You could actually pour it into a bag of Fritos, like Frito Pie.
Prep: 5 mins

2Add peppers, beans, corn, chiles, soup mix, 2 cups water, cumin, salt, oregano, and cayenne. Simmer, covered, 10 minutes. Stir ¼ cup water into flour in a small cup until smooth. Stir into stew; cook until thickened, about 1 minute. Serve with cheese and tortilla chips.
