Ingredients

    1 cup chopped onion (approx. 1/2 large)
    1 cup chopped green, red, yellow, and/or orange bell pepper
    3 cloves garlic, chopped
    2 cans black beans, rinsed well and drained
    2 cans diced tomatoes (I recommend no-salt for the best flavor)
    2 cups Swanson Natural Goodness chicken broth or vegetable broth
    1/2 cup Pace picante sauce or other non-chunky salsa
    2 tsp ground cumin
    chili powder to taste
    dash of ground cinnamon if desired

Directions

Saute peppers, onion, and garlic until crisp-tender. Add butter with canola oil if not using non-stick (and for better flavor)*. Add beans, tomatoes, and broth. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer, uncovered, until thickened. Stir in cumin and chili powder about halfway through. If adding shrimp (cooked, peeled, and deveined) add when chili is thickened and heat through.

Add cilantro, oregano, and any other spices (if using) at the end of cooking.

This also makes a great base for a meat chili, just add leftover taco meat or chicken instead of shrimp.

*butter not included in recipe. Olive oil also works well.

Number of Servings: 12
