  1. Heat the olive oil in a stock pot over medium heat; add the onion and cover. Cook the onions until soft and translucent, about 5 minutes. Stir the squash, great Northern beans, and lima beans into the pot; pour the chicken stock over the mixture. Cover and cook until the squash is tender and beginning to break apart, 30 to 45 minutes.
  2. Stir the corn and basil into the stew; cook until the stew reaches the consistency of pancake batter, about 10 minutes more. Sprinkle the chopped banana pepper over individual portions to serve.

A good base recipe for a hearty stew. I used dried lima beans and omitted the canned great northern beans, and I suggest adding 2-4 diced tomatoes, 1/4 C dry white wine, and 1 clove garlic for ...

Very nice stew! I have made this as-written, and again with the variation suggested in the reviews, and it just keeps getting better! My dad is Chilean so it is fun to make this for the family...

SO tasty. I added coriander in the beginning and fresh cilantro and a ton of basil toward the end. Yum!

I added garlic and omitted the northern beans. It tastes just like I had it in Chile.

Very tasty and filling; used northern beans only (didn't have lima beans on hand). Make sure to use plenty of basil and sprinkle some of the chopped pepper on top of your bowl if you like a bit ...

If you want to speed up the cooking time, you can use a blender to blend the chicken stock with the raw onions and squash (yes you'll change the flavor when you don't saute the onions, but it's ...
