Maybe the IAC valve is dirty. Clean it and check for loose hoses. Could also be a plugged air filter.

My explorer stalled like that a couple times while I had it. Never noticed any further issues due to it.

A buick I drove once did that... every 30 min on the nose. It would restart fine every time so I took it into the dealership, they pulled out the computer, I told them not to replace it, and it never had that problem again.
