Mexican Shrimp Stew
Why I Love This Recipe
There are seafood stews swimming through every cuisine in the world. This one has a decided Mexican flair, which you can create instantly with a can of diced tomatoes, a can each of corn and black beans, and a handful of chopped cilantro. The shrimp cook in seconds, so they should be added in the last minute of simmering.
