Bumblebee Stew

Bumblebee Stew

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!
