 Ingredients List

  • 28 oz Canned Peeled Tomatoes
  • 2 c Chopped Onion
  • 2 tb Olive Oil
  • 1/2 c Chopped Celery
  • 1/2 c Chopped Carrots
  • 2 tb Minced Fresh Garlic
  • 1/2 c Chopped Red Bell Pepper
  • 1/4 c Chili Powder
  • 2 tb Tomato Paste
  • 30 oz Drained Black Beans

  • 2 ts Crushed Oregano
  • 1 ts Sugar -- Salt to Taste
  • 1/4 c Chopped Fresh Cilantro


Coarsely chop tomatoes and set them aside along, reserving their liquid.

In a large, heavy pot over medium-high heat, cook onions in oil until soft,
about 5 minutes.

Add celery, carrots, garlic, and bell pepper; saute 5 minutes longer or
until vegetables are soft.

Add chili powder and cook an additional 2-3 minutes. Add tomato paste,
beans, sherry, stock, tomatoes with reserved liquid, cumin, and oregano.
Bring mixture to a boil. Lower heat and simmer, covered, for 1 hour.

Adjust seasoning with sugar and salt. Stir in cilantro and cook 10 minutes
more, uncovered.

Pattye's notes: We had this for dinner tonight and my entire family
(including a 5 year old and a 7 year old plus an 8 year old friend)
declared it the best dinner ever. I served it over brown rice with some
wheat berry bread.
