What you need:Note: We love this dish with a kick. If your tastes are a bit more on the mild side, you can omit the cayenne. Serve over whole wheat pasta and smothered in cheese. Substitute the chicken broth for vegetable broth as a veggie option.
- 1 large red onion, diced
- 1 small green pepper, diced
- 2 tsp vegetable oil
- 1 can kidney beans, rinsed and drained
- 1 can black beans, rinsed and drained
- 1 can pinto beans, rinsed and drained
- 2 cans stewed tomatoes, undrained
- 1 can chicken broth
- 1 cup picanté sauce
- 1 tsp ground cumin
- 1 tsp cayenne
What to do:
In a large pot, sauté the onion and pepper in the vegetable oil over medium high heat. Add the remaining ingredients and bring to a boil. Cover, reduce heat, and simmer for 10 minutes.
Yiayia gave me this recipe six years ago and Colleen and I have been cooking it every winter since. You can eat this for days and it warms you up after a long, cold day. -Stephania
