Ingredients

  • 4-6 medium Russet potatoes, peeled and diced up
  • 2 cups chopped onion
  • 1 lb. frozen corn kernels
  • 1/2 lb. diced bacon
  • 1 lb. pinto or red kidney beans
  • 1 small can green Aneheim chilies
  • Salt and cayenne pepper to taste
  • ***Whatever else you want!

Directions

Soak the beans overnight in plenty of water. Drain and rinse well. Put everything else with the beans in a pressure cooker on high heat, and when it starts to rock the gauge, turn it down and cook it for the amount of time your pressure cooker indicates.

I want to thank from the bottom of my heart the person who originally posted "Dis Chi Stew"! It is VERY tasty as is, but I felt it needed some additions. Of course this is not an "authentic" recipe, but my goodness it is SO GOOD! I like to serve it with warmed up "gorditas" tortillas and a little shredded Cheddar cheese. My recipe probably lacks the finesse of the grilled corn, but I'm sure if you really wanted that particular taste, you could take the frozen corn, defrost it on the counter, and caramalize it in a skillet with a bit of the bacon fat for a few minutes.

This is such a wonderful recipe...So delicious, so filling, and with a miriad of variations possible! Try the original recipe; then try this one, and afterwards just use your imagination to create another variation on the theme. You may want it spicier; add some hot chilies or Tabasco or...! Perhaps you might want to add some roasted cumin one time, or finish the dish with a bunch of chopped fresh cilantro.

Thank you for posting this recipe. It's one of my favorite bean recipes now and it has been such an inspiration!

Blessings to all!
