I got this recipe from a friend I had in Seattle.
It's been a family favorite for almost seven years now!
Makes a great burrito filling, too!
Saute the green pepper, onion, and jalapeno in a big pot over medium
heat until the onion is soft, but not browned (no oil).
- 1 green pepper, chopped
- 1 onion, chopped
- 1-2 jalapenos, minced
- 1-2 cloves of garlic, minced
- 3 cans of blackbeans, leave starch in one can
- 3 tomatoes or 2 cans of tomatoes, chopped
- 1 can of corn (without sugar), drained
- mild chili powder
Add the garlic and saute for about a minute or less.
Add the black beans, corn, and tomatoes.

a lot and to your taste.
Bring to a boil and reduce heat to low.
At this time, start to boil the water for the rice (Basmati is
the best for this dish).
It takes 35 minutes for the rice to simmer.
When the rice is done, the chili is done (about 45-50 minutes for
You can cook the chili longer if you prefer.
If you've added too much salt to the chili, just throw in a quartered
potato until the saltiness subsides, then remove the potato.
