Preparation Time:
Number of Servings: 6

2 Cup(s) Black or red kidney or other
beans sorted and
2 Teaspoon(s) Epazote, optional
4 Teaspoon(s) Cumin seeds
2 Teaspoon(s) Dried oregano
Preferably Mexican
3 Onions, finely diced
3 Tablespoon(s) Vegetable oil
4 Garlic cloves, coarsely
4 Teaspoon(s) Sweet paprika
2 Tablespoon(s) Ground red chile, up to 3
2 Cup(s) Peeled and seeded and
chopped tomato juice
1 Teaspoon(s) Pureed chipotle chile, up to
1/4 Cup(s) Chopped cilantro
A dash of red wine or sherry
Sour cream
1 Poblano or long green chile
Roasted and peeled and
Cilantro sprigs
beans, other beans can be used with great success here, such as Jacobs
cattle, pinto, or red kidney. Bean chili will keep for 4 to 5 days. To
rewarm, thin it with a little water, heat it gently, and be sure to
taste before serving. A splash of vinegar will wake it up if it seems
dull. Drain the beans. Put them in a soup pot, add the epazote and
fresh water to cover by 4 inches, and boil for 5 to 10 minutes. Remove
any surface scum. Lower the heat and simmer, partially covered. While
they're cooking, toast the cumin seeds in a dry skillet over medium
heat. When they turn fragrant, add the oregano, shaking the pan so
that the herbs don't burn, for about 5 seconds. Turn them onto a plate
to cool, then grind to a powder. Saute the onions in the oil in a
skillet over medium heat for 7 to 8 minutes. Add the garlic, 1 1/2
teaspoons salt, the cumin mixture, paprika, and ground chile. Lower
the heat and cook until the onions are soft, another 5 minutes. Add
the tomatoes and juice, 1 teaspoon chipotle puree, and the cilantro.
Simmer for 15 minutes, then add this mixture to the beans. Continue
cooking until the beans are completely soft, about 30 minutes
altogether, making sure the water level stays at least an inch or two
above them. Taste and season with more chipotle and salt, if needed,
and add a dash of vinegar to the flavors. Ladle the beans into bowls
and garnish with a spoonful of sour cream, the chile strips, and a
sprig of cilantro. . Per serving: 86 Calories (kcal); 7g Total Fat;
