Winter Squash Stew with Pinto Beans and Corn

In Santa Fe, I like to cook dried corn kernels, or chicos, along with the beans. They plump up into regular size and have a wonderfully chewy texture. Because dried corn isn't widely availablae, you can easly substitute frozen corn or rinsed canned hominy.
