On cold nights or when you feel like having something unusual, tasty and filling, you can make this hearty corn stew recipe Spanish style which can be ready to eat in about 1/2 an hour.

List of ingredients

1/4 pounds of cooking ham

3 spoons of olive oil

1 onion (cut up)

1 green cut pepper (you may substitute red pepper instead)

3 garlic cloves

1/2 cup of tomato sauce

1 Spanish chorizo * (cut up)

2 table spoons of dry cooking wine

1 teaspoon of salt

1 teaspoon of white vinegar

1/8 teaspoon of ground black pepper

2 cups of water

1 cup of potatoes (cut up)

1 cup of pumpkin (cut up)

2 packs of frozen corn

Parsley and paprika to dress up the finished dish.

Cut the ham into small bits and saute in olive oil along with the onion, green pepper and garlic. Add the tomato sauce, chorizo, salt, black pepper, water and potatoes.

When the potatoes start to soften add the pumpkin bits and the corn. Let cook on low or medium heat for approximately 30 minutes or so. Stir frequently to prevent sticking and watch for consistency.

This dish is best served along with a side salad, cold beer or chilled white wine and artisan bread.

*Chorizo can be a fresh sausage, in which case it must be cooked before eating. In Europe, it is more frequently a fermented, cured, smoked sausage, in which case it is usually sliced and eaten without cooking. Spanish chorizo and Portuguese chouriço get their distinctive smokiness and deep red color from dried smoked red peppers (pimentón/pimentão or colorau). "Wikipedia
