Title: Black bean chili #3
Yield: 8 Servings
4 c Dried black turtle beans
Cloves garlic -- crushed
2 ts Ground cumin
2 1/4 ts Salt
Black pepper to taste
2 ts Dried basil
1/2 ts Dried oregano
Crushed red pepper or
-cayenne; to taste
1 tb Fresh lime juice
Green bell peppers; medium
2 tb Olive oil
1/2 c Tomato puree
(4-oz) cans diced green
Red onion salsa recipe
Grated cheese and sour cream
1) Soak the beans in plenty of water for several hours or overnight.
Drain off the soaking water, and cook in fresh boiling water, partly
covered, until tender (1 to 1 1/2 hours). Check the water level
during cooking; add more as necessary. Transfer the cooked beans to a
large kettle or saucepan. Include about 2 to 3 cups of their cooking
water. 2) In a heavy skillet, saute garlic, seasonings, lime juice,
and bell peppers in olive oil over medium-low heat until the peppers
are tender (10 to 15 minutes). 3) Add the saute to the cooked beans,
along with tomato puree and minced green chilies. Simmer, covered,
over _very_ low heat, stirring every now and then, for about 45
minutes. (Make the salsa during this time.) 4) Serve topped with Red
Onion Salsa and, if desired, grated cheese and sour cream.
NOTE: The recipe did not state how many cloves of garlic, bell
