We have updated the nutrition to this recipe to assign the proper cooked nutritional analysis for the beef. It was causing the grams of fat to show much higher than they actually are.

All I can say is -- FIFTY FOUR GRAMS OF FAT??? Made this (and ate this) before looking at the nutritional information. It was very tasty, however, if I'm going to eat 900 calories and 54 grams of fat in one sitting again, it sure as heck won't be from stew! Yikes!

This looked like slop in a pot BUT it was VERY GOOD! Typically, I like spicier chili's while my boyfriend prefers mild. Even though this is a very mild chili, it was really good and my boyfriend ate a couple bowls himself! It is very thick - but then again, it is a STEW. Still, with a little shredded cheese over the top, this was great! Thanks again LaDonna for another great recipe!

My husband loves this better than Chili. It goes together so easy & taste even better the next day. Everyone that we have served it to loves it.

It tasted like low budget chili from a can.

This is a good recipe for cold days, and very good with cornbread or corn muffins. Makes a complete meal and makes you warm inside.

Very easy but tasty! Watch the simmer as the creamed corn burns easily. I serve over rice and skip the sour cream. ETA ~ The last time I made this, I got smart and used my slow cooker. It worked great, no burnt corn! I just browned the meat and then threw everything together in the cooker and set it on high. I think I let it cook for about an hour.

I've made this several times and each time it was quick, easy and enjoyed by all. It's especially good for cold evenings and sports-themed parties (i.e. Super Bowl parties!). Thanks!
