•1 tablespoon canola oil
•1 1/2 cups chopped onion
•4 cloves garlic, chopped
•1 1/2 teaspoon cumin
•1 tablespoon chili powder
•1/2 teaspoon dried oregano leaves
•1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
•1/2 teaspoon salt
•1 cup diced red bell pepper
•1/2 cup diced yellow pepper
•4 1/2 cups black beans, low-sodium canned, drained
•1 1/2 cups water

In a large pot over medium heat, cook onion in oil until tender, about 3-4 minutes. Stir in garlic, cumin, chili powder, oregano, cayenne pepper, salt, and diced peppers. In a blender, puree 1 1/2 cups of beans with half (3/4 cup) the water on high setting, about 30 seconds. Add bean mixture to pot. Add the rest of the water (3/4 cup) and remaining whole beans, unblended to the pot and stir together. Reduce heat and simmer for 15 minutes, stirring often.

This recipe is another wonderful recipe from Full Plate Diet! Very easy and also re-heats quite well. I changed the 1/2 cup yellow pepper to 1 cup and feel it was perfect!

Thumbs Up!
