  • Summary

    I've included the recipe exactly as it appears in the cookbook, but feel free to save yourself some time like I do and just substitute the chilis and the chipotle for just ground chili powder (I used a combination of ancho and chipotle). Also, if your ground cumin and the rest of your spices are fresh, no need to refresh with a pan toasting. Play around with the rice vinegar as it is the lovely counterpoint to all the smokiness of the dish; cider vinegar also works well here.

    Ingredients

    • 2 C. black turtle beans, soaked overnight
    • 1 bay leaf
    • 4 tsp. cumin seeds
    • 4 tsp. dried oregano
    • 4 tsp. paprika
    • ½ tsp. cayenne pepper
    • 1 chili negro or ancho chili, or 2-3 Tbs. chili powder
    • 3 Tbs. corn or peanut oil (I used vegetable or canola)
    • 3 medium yellow onions, diced into ¼ inch squares
    • 4 cloves garlic, coarsely chopped
    • ½ tsp. salt
    • 1½ lb. ripe or canned tomatoes, peeled, seeded and chopped (i just used canned diced and pureed the whole lot)
    • 1-2 tsp chopped chipotle chili (if you don't have, just use a bit more chili powder)
    • about 1 Tbs. rice wine vinegar (I like to double that)
    • 4 Tbs. cilantro, chopped
    • Suggested Garnishes:
    • ½ -3/4 C. muenster cheese, grated (I prefer sharp cheddar)
    • Green chilies (fresh roasted and diced or canned, rinsed well and diced, about 2 oz.)
    • ½ C. creme fraiche or sour cream
    • cilantro
