  • 16 oz bag dried black beans
  • 1 large onion chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic chopped
  • 4 cups veggie stock
  • 6 cups water
  • 2 teaspoon cumin separated
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 red pepper diced
  • 1 green pepper diced
  • 1 red onion diced
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 1/2 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 limes juiced, 1 additional lime, juiced & zested
  • 6 oz veggie chorizo


  1. Follow package directions and either soak the beans the night before or use the quick soak method. Drain well & rinse the beans.
  2. Put the beans in a large stock pot. Add the onions, garlic, veggie stock, water and cumin. Bring to boil, reduce to simmer & continue cooking until the beans are tender. Sit back & relax, this takes a while! Stir occasionally, it will take 1 1/2- 2 hours to cook the beans.
  3. When the beans are tender, blend them until they are smooth using an immersion blender or in batches with a counter blender. Season them with salt.
  4. While the beans are cooking, combine the remaining ingredients except the chorizo. Using a one gallon zip lock bag, add the red & green peppers, red onion, cumin (1 teaspoon), red pepper flakes, chili powder, black pepper, the juice of 2 limes & olive oil. Set aside to marinade, turning the bag
  5. After you've pureed the beans, it's time to cook the veggies. Using a saute pan over medium heat, saute the vegetables for 4-5 minutes until they just begin to soften.
  6. Add the vegetables and chorizo to the pot of beans and stir thoroughly. Reduce heat to low & cook for an additional 15 minutes, allowing the flavors to combine. Add the remaining lime juice & zest, stir well. Taste to adjust seasonings, you may need to add a touch more salt, just double-check.
