8 servings

  • 3 teaspoons olive oil
  • 1 medium onion, diced
  • 1/2 red pepper, diced
  • 1 large carrot, diced or shredded
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1/2 tablespoon chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 (15-ounce) can whole or chopped tomatoes
  • 1 cup broth (vegetable, chicken, tomato juice or water)
  • 1 (28-ounce) can black beans
  • 1 ear corn, kernels removed
  • Coarse salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • Perfect Microwaveable Rice, recipe follows
  • Perfect Microwave Rice:
  • 2 cups long grain rice
  • 3 1/2 cups water or stock
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons butter or oil
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • In a large pot, heat the olive oil over medium high heat. Add the onions, peppers, carrot, and garlic, cook stirring often, until vegetables are tender, about 5 minutes. Add chili powder and cumin, and cook 1 to 2 minutes more or until they smell delicious.

  • Add the tomatoes, broth, black beans and corn to the pot with the vegetables. Bring to a boil, reduce to a simmer. Cook 10 to 20 minutes, until flavors are well combined. Taste and adjust seasonings with salt and pepper.

  • Serve over rice.

  • Note: If the chili seems too thick, thin out with water or chicken stock.

Perfect Microwave Rice:
  • Place all ingredients in a large glass measuring or any microwave safe bowl. The rice expands during cooking, so be sure to choose a container that is large enough. Microwave on high, uncovered, for 10 minutes. Microwave on medium-low, uncovered, for 15 minutes. Do not stir the rice at any time during the cooking process. Season with salt and fluff with a fork just before serving.

  • Yield: 6 to 8 servings
