Quick Facts

Servings: 8
Prep Time: 10 min.
Cook Time: 30 min.
Total: 40 min.
A great recipe for first-time cooks. You can't go wrong with this healthy chili-like stew.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup instant brown rice
  • 2 tsp olive oil
  • 1 red bell pepper, diced
  • 3/4 cup red onion, diced
  • 1-2 Roma tomatoes, diced
  • 1 15-ounce can black beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1 15-ounce can red kidney beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1 11-ounce can corn, drained
  • 1 8-ounce can tomato sauce
  • 1/2 cup prepared salsa (you can use 3/4 cup if you like more sauce in your chili)
  • 1 1/2 tsp ground cumin
  • 1 tsp dried oregano
  • 1 tsp dried thyme
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper

Directions

  • Cook rice according to package directions, keep warm, set aside.
  • Heat a large saucepan over medium heat. Saute the bell pepper and red onion in the olive oil, until the onion is cooked (about 5 minutes); add tomatoes at the end and cook for 1 minute.
  • Add black beans, red kidney beans, tomato sauce, salsa, and corn; stir to combine thoroughly.
  • Add remaining ingredients (all spices); stir to combine; simmer for 5 minutes.
  • Serve with brown rice (I usually put the brown rice at the bottom of the bowl, chili on top, and stir to combine).
