I have made this recipe numerous times and it always turns out great. I usually leave out the jalapeno because I'm not a fan of spicy food. I also use canned corn, and sometimes omit the Lime if I dont have it on hand. I usually shred some cheese for the top and add extra cilanto as well. This dish never disapoints no matter how you change it up. LOVE IT!!!!
Rustic Mexican Stew
From EatingWell: EatingWell Serves Two
A fiesta-in-a-bowl, this stew gets vibrant colors and flavor from scallions, carrots, jalapenos, tomatoes, cilantro and a whole ear of corn. Top it with diced avocado, hot sauce or salsa.

Delicious and flavorful--i made it vegetarian by using pink beans instead of chicken. also added a sliced zucchini and cut the corn off the cob and used a red onion instead of scallions.
Great, easy-to-make stew. I didn't have any jalepeno in the kitchen so I put in a little cayenne pepper. Satisfying for my tastebuds.
This was delicious although I had to make some modifications. I doubled the recipe, substituted frozen kernels for the corn-on-the-cob and served it over brown rice since there was a lot of liquid. My husband and son rated it a keeper. The carrots add smoothness and sweetness to the flavor. I have one serving left over for lunch tomorrow - perfect!
