Veggie Chile Stew

This terrific vegetable stew is made with popular Mexican vegetables and a hint of green chiles. Green chiles are the perfect “first” pepper to introduce. They have a gentle, mild flavor. While you can puree this recipe to a smooth texture or it’s perfect as a stage 3 food with a slightly chunky texture.

  • 2 medium zucchini, diced
  • ½ cup diced tomatoes (fresh or canned)
  • 1 ear corn, kernels cut off cob (or ¾ cup frozen corn)
  • 1 Tbsp. canned green chiles
  • ¼ cup water
  1. Place all the ingredients in a pan and bring to a boil over high heat. Cover the pan and turn heat down to medium. Cook for 15 minutes.
  2. Pour the vegetable stew into a blender or food processor and pulse to chunky texture.
  3. Spoon into Fresh Baby Freezer Storage Trays.
  4. Cover and freeze.

When ready to serve, defrost and warm up the cubes. This stew is a delicious vegetable dish. You can also add cooked brown rice or fork-mashed black beans to it before serving.
