Black Bean Chili


You can have this chili on the table in no time at all since you probably already have the ingredients in your pantry. We like ours made with black beans, but you can also use red kidney or pinto beans, or mix two kinds of beans together. For a change of pace, serve the chili over quinoa instead of rice.



  1. Two 16-oz. cans black beans, rinsed and drained
  2. In large nonstick pot, heat oil over medium heat. Add onion, bell pepper, jalapeño and garlic and cook, stirring often, until vegetables begin to soften, 5 minutes. Add spices, tomatoes, beans and water, and simmer 15 minutes. Stir in corn and cook 1 minute. Stir in cilantro and serve.
