 Ingredients List

  • 1 lb Dried black beans; soaked
  • -overnight
  • ---Seasoning Mix---
  • 1 tb Ground dried ancho chile;
  • -plus
  • 2 ts Ground dried ancho chile
  • 2 ts Salt
  • 2 ts Garlic powder
  • 2 ts Onion powder
  • 2 ts Dried oregano
  • 2 ts Ground dried California
  • -Beauty chile
  • 1 ts Cayenne
  • 1 ts Dried thyme
  • 3/4 ts Black pepper
  • 1/2 ts White pepper
  • 5 c Nonfat chicken broth; or

  • 2 c Chopped onion
  • 2 c Chopped green bell pepper
  • 3 Bay leaves
  • ---Optional---
  • 1 lb Smoked turkey sausage;
  • -finely chopped


These beans, served alone, are very hot. You can alter the heat by using
milder chile peppers. Serve them with rice, tortillas, or sour cream to
cool them off.

Use these beans in the Black Bean Bread or serve over rice.

NOTES : Day 1: Add enough water to the red beans to cover them by 3 or 4
inches, and soak overnight in the refrigerator. As the beans absorb the
water; they'll more than double in volume.

Day 2: Combine the seasoning mix ingredients in a small bowl. Drain the
beans and puree 1/2 of them with 1 cup of the stock. Set aside.

In a preheated 6-qt pot, add the onions, bell peppers, and bay leaves. (Add
the sausage, if using.) Cook, stirring occasionally, for 10 minutes. Add
the seasoning mix and the beans, and cook, stirring occasionally, for 45
minutes. Add the pureed bean-stock mixture and cook for 15 minutes. Stir
well, then add the remaining stock. Bring to a boil, then reduce the heat
and cover. Simmer until the beans are tender, about 1 hour.
