Recipe

When it starts to get cold, I inevitably want soup of all kinds and varieties, and am perfectly content eating soup for dinner every night. This recipe for Wild Caribbean Black Bean Chili is adapted from the Joy of Cooking and is a great twist on a traditional chili. It can be made in the crock pot or on the stove and creates an intense, spicy, and yet subtly sweet chili that will be different than anything you have had before. Great on it’s own or as a twist in any dip or recipe that calls for chili.

Directions

  1. Rinse and soak the bean overnight if you desire. Normally I find if I add 2 hours of cooking time, I can skip soaking the beans.
  2. Combine all the ingredients in your slow cooker and cook for 6-8 hours.
  3. Add more water or chicken broth along the way if needed. Serve on it’s on as chili, over rice, or as a side dish.
