Southwestern Pork Stew

Great fill-you-up, warm-you-up  in the fall recipe!  The cornmeal used in this recipe adds a unique flavor as well as acting as a thickener! The recipe says to serve with tortillas. We did this, but it is honestly good without! Or you could serve dinner rolls with it.

1 medium onion, chopped
3 large cloves garlic, finely chopped

1 cup chicken broth
2 cups frozen whole kernel corn, thawed
Sour cream and cheddar cheese for topping
