Recipe Notes

  • Feel free to mix up the variety of beans used to fit your family's tastes.
  • If you have meat-eaters in the family, you could add a pound of ground beef or ground turkey.
  • For extra flavor, use fire-roasted tomatoes.

Here's how to make it: 

  1. Heat the olive oil in a large soup pot. Add the onion, bell pepper, carrots and celery. Cook until soft and beginning to brown, about 7 to 10 minutes. Add the garlic and cook 30 seconds. 
  2. Add the water or broth, chili powder, ground cumin, dried oregano and cayenne powder. Cook about 2 minutes.
  3. Add the beans and tomatoes. Bring to a simmer, reduce heat and cook for about 10 minutes. Uncover and cook until it reaches desired thickness, about 5 more minutes.
