This is a hearty, chunky stew. I love that all you need to do is chop a couple things, open a few cans, and toss it all in. And the end result is perfect—healthy, but really filling and satisfying.

Paleo: Omit corn and black beans, and add 2 more peppers, if desired. 

Vegetarian: Use vegetable broth instead of chicken broth. Omit chicken and add 1/2-1 cup more corn and 1 additional can of black beans.
