Thick and Chunky Black Bean Chili
  • 16 oz thick & chunky salsa
  • 3 cans black beans, rinsed and drained
  • ½ cup fat free chicken broth
  • 1 medium red bell pepper, chopped
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 2 teaspoons chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • ¼ cup sour cheese (optional) (if you add it, we recommend using low-fat to save fat and calories)
  • ¼ cup shredded cheese (optional) (again, we recommend using low-fat to cut fat and calories)
  1. In a slow cooker, combine salsa, beans, broth, bell pepper, onion cumin, chili powder and oregano. Mix well and cover; cook on low 8 hours. Garnish with sour cream and cheese (optional).
  2. Or if you don’t have a slow cooker combine all ingredients in large pot on stove and simmer for 30min-hour for the flavors to meld.
