Comfort comes in many forms, but in the dead of winter when the holidays are done and it’s freezing cold outside, it comes in the form of a rich and flavorful stew. When you can’t really go anywhere or do anything? The stew is just that much more comforting.
This is the kind of stew that everyone loves — tender chicken, white beans that are mashed a bit to give the stew some body, savory tomatoes, and a bit of Ava Jane’s Kitchen Hot Roasted Garlic. I can’t tell you enough how much I love this seasoning blend. Unlike red pepper flakes, which can be just plain hot, this blend has mellow garlic flavor and a little bit of heat without being overwhelming. So you can add it to something like this and you get a rounded and well balanced flavor that even kids will love. If it’s too hot, a dollop of sour cream cools it down and adds a bit of a velvety texture.
On a cold night, this is all you need. With a crusty bread, it’s nothing short of perfection!
