Not exactly a stew but I didn't know what to call it! It's like a mix of chili and stew. Not exactly a stew but I didn't know what to call it! It's like a mix of chili and stew.
Number of Servings: 4


    1 1/2 cups dry black beans (about 3 cups cooked/2 cans)
    1 1/2 cups dry kidney beans (about 3 cups cooked/2 cans)
    1 small onion, chopped
    1 green bell pepper, chopped
    2 cloves garlic
    1 can diced tomatoes (do not drain)
    1 small can tomato sauce
    seasonings as desired (salt, chili powder, italian seasoning, red pepper, etc. Mix and match as you like!)
    2 cups water


Soak beans in separate bowls overnight.
The next morning/afternoon, saute onion in a little bit of vegetable broth or water for 3 minutes (until it begins to brown). Add garlic and bell pepper and saute another 2-3 minutes, until fragrant and everything begins to soften.
Drain beans of soak water and rinse well.
Add to slow cooker with all remaining ingredients. Turn to high for an hour, then down to low for a few hours (until beans are cooked).

Makes 4 servings about 2 cups each. I find 1/2 of a 'serving' is plenty filling!

Serve with homemade cornbread, tortillas, tortilla chips, or over lettuce! It's up to you!
