Baja Stew

I like to serve this stew with a garnish of fresh scallion, maybe some cheese and/or sour cream with tortillas on the side.

1 package Gardein Beefless tips
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
1 cube vegan chicken broth, mixed with 1-1/2 cups water
1 can Rotel, undrained
1 can diced green chiles, undrained
1 medium onion, chopped
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 tablespoon ground cumin
1 tablespoon dried oregano
1 can black beans, rinsed and drained
1 can whole kernel corn, drained
flour tortillas
Toppings: sliced scallions, sour cream, cheese, salsa

Toss beef tips with flour in medium sized bowl.

Brown the tips in hot oil in a large Dutch oven. Remove beef and set aside. Stir in next 9 ingredients (through oregano); bring to a boil.

Simmer for about 15 minutes. Add corn and beans to pot and simmer another 15 minutes or until everything is nice and hot.

Add tips and cook for another 3 or 4 minutes. Serve with tortillas and garnishes.
