This is one of our family’s favorite recipes.
Its perfect for those nights when you realize is 5:00 and you forgot to thaw meat out! My husband hates green peppers and celery and yet he loves this dinner so don’t let that dissuade you. The flavor combo is really unique and delicious! Here is what you need:
½ c green pepper, diced
3 cloves garlic, minced
½ c celery, diced
1 c onion, minced
1 can black beans, drained
1 c tomato, chopped
1/8 tsp. salt
¼ tsp. red pepper
¼ tsp. cumin
1 c mozzarella cheese
First chop your onions and garlic very small. I’m lazy and use my food processor.
Place those in a large saucepan.
Next dice your green pepper, celery, and tomatoes. I chopped mine ahead of time while the kids were at school. Then at 5:00 during the homework/after school rush, dinner was way easier to make and take care of.
Add celery and green peppers to onions and garlic. Drizzle with olive oil and sauté.
I cook them until the onions start to brown.
Turn to low and add drained black beans and spices. The red peppers gives it spice so judge that based on your own tastes. Mix well. Last of all add the tomatoes and let cook for a just a few minutes so they are warm but not mushy.
