Hearty Corn Stew • Guizo de Maiz

Servings: 4


  • ¼ pound ham, diced
  • 1 teaspoon Accent
  • 3 tablespoons oil
  • ¼ teaspoon ground pepper
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 2 cups ham or beef stock
  • 1 large green pepper, chopped
  • 1 cup diced potatoes
  • 3 cloves garlic, pressed
  • 2 cups frozen corn kernels or 4 ears of corn cut in 1 inch chunks
  • 1 cup tomato sauce
  • 2 chorizo sausages or smoked sausages cut in ½ inch thick rounds
  • Directions

    • Lightly sauté the diced ham with the chopped onion, the mashed garlic and the chopped green pepper and cook for about 5 minutes over medium heat until the onion becomes transparent. Do not brown the garlic.

    • Add the tomato sauce, sausage, salt, pepper, Accent, stock and potatoes.

    • When the potatoes start to soften (do not allow them to become mushy) add the corn and cook for 5 more minutes at medium heat, until the corn is cooked through.

    Ham Stock

  • 1 Ham bone which has been cracked with a machete (this would be a very authentic touch but use whatever works for you)
  • 1 onion
  • 1 rib celery
  • 1 carrot
  • 1 small bunch parsley
  • 4 cups water
  • Salt
  • • Cover the ham bone with the water, add the vegetables and simmer, covered, for 2 Hours.
    (Bouillon, canned beef, broth or water may be substituted for the ham stock).
