Corn & Potato Stew
A recipe from the Sneaky Kitchen
3 Tbsp. olive oil
1 large onion, diced
1 1/2 C. diced ham
3 garlic cloves, minced
1 6-oz. can tomato paste
2 16 oz. cans whole kernel corn
4 C. diced potato
water

Heat olive oil in a heavy deep skillet or Dutch oven. Add onion & ham; sauté on med.-high heat until onion is soft & starting to brown. Add minced garlic; sauté another minute. Add tomato paste & sauté a minute more, stirring constantly.

Drain corn and add with the diced potatoes; stir. Add just enough water to almost cover food, bring to a rolling boil, then cover & lower heat. Simmer until potatoes are tender. Taste; if needed, bring to a boil long enough to reduce the liquid somewhat. Sprinkle with a little minced parsley to serve, if desired.
