Recipe of the Month

This is one of my favorites from The Pampered Chef recipes. It is great this time of year and not your traditional chili.

1 C chopped onion
1 C coarsely chopped red bell pepper
2 Tbsp. finely chopped jalapeno pepper
2 Tbsp. snipped cilantro
1 tsp. vegetable oil
2 garlic cloves pressed
2 cans (15 1/2 oz. each) black beans, drained and rinsed
1 can (16 oz.) fat-free refried beans
1 can (14 1/2 oz.) vegetable broth
1 Tbsp. lime juice
1 tsp. ground cumin
Queso fresco (optional)

1. Chop onion, bell pepper and jalapeno pepper. Snip Cilantro. Set aside.
2. Heat oil in sauce pan over medium heat. Add onion, bell pepper, jalapeno and garlic; cook and stir 3 minutes. Add black beans, refried beans, broth, lime juice and cumin; bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer uncovered, 10 minutes.
3. Remove from heat; stir cilantro into chili. Ladle chili into bowls and sprinkle with cheese.
