Chicken & Bean Stewp

Chicken and bean stewp is one of my quick throw it together meals.  Sometimes I make it and we eat it right away, other times I make it, throw it…literally,  in a crock pot, turn it on warm, and let the troops eat as they roll in.  What is a stewp?  Well it’s not as thick as a stew, but not as watery as a soup and it’s chocked full of all sorts of spice, and vegetables, and meat.  Stewp is a hearty soup!  If you wondered I stole this word from Rachel Ray….that girl has all sorts of foodyisms, gotta love her!



I’m going to keep it short today…cause I know ya’ll are busy, with it nearing the holidays and all!  You just need to get dinner on the table! Chicken and Bean Stewp does call for one spice blend that you may not have in your cupboard…it is one of my very favorite next to curry. Garam Masala is a spice blend typically used in Indian cooking it includes cinnamon, cardamon, cumin, cloves, and peppers.   I love to use it in soups, stews, and marinades.




This is a great Sunday afternoon dinner, serve her up with a crusty loaf,  and for dessert serve slices of Pumpkin Gingerbread with a scoop of vanilla ice cream Yum! Your house will smell amazing! And your family will thank you profusely for the scrumptious meal you fixed them. No need to tell them how easy it was!

Luvya Much! Sheila

    What do you think I could substitute for Garam Masala? It seems like a significant amount, but I don’t have it on hand. Any ideas?

      I think you could just use salt and pepper, and a little garlic salt it would be like a hearty chicken soup. Or we love curry, that would be good too. One more option would be to use 1/2 tsp allspice, 1 tsp chili powder, salt and pepper add more spice later if you like. Let me know what you think.
