Serves 8@ 3 points per serving - without rice.

 

4 C. Fat free vegetable broth

1 medium onion - diced

1 lb of black beans

4 cloves of garlic

1 bell pepper - diced

 

2 TB of chili powder

salt to taste

 

The chili powder I use, is a blend of oregano, chili pepper, red pepper, cumin and garlic - hence I don't add much in the way of seasoning since it's already there.

 

You can soak the beans over night, or you can throw it all in the crock as is and let it go for 12 hours.

 

You can skip the onion and pepper, and add a jar of salsa if it suits your tastes.

 

I serve it over rice for a 7 point meal that is very filling.

rice tends to turn to mush when you put it in a crockpot. :ugh:

Nicole, that recipe sounds soooo good, and PERFECT for my level of effort. :) I even have the same chili powder - in about 2000, someone turned me on to Penzeys and I've never looked back.

I'm making this now. I can't wait to try it tomorrow, I haven't had beans and rice in forever! It smelled delicious just mixing it together in the slow cooker. LOL I'll let you know how it turned out tomorrow!

This was good. Just before serving I added precooked chicken sausage and fresh cilantro to it. I served it over quinoa. Very filling. It is also good with 1/4 cup of fresh salsa mixed in. DH loves it and wants me to make it again! Serving size is about one heaping 1/2 cup.

I'd like to try this recipe, but since i don't have the type of chili powder the poster used, I'm a little unsure of how much of each spice I should add. I'd appreciate any feedback- I was thinking:

 

1 TBSP chili powder

1 tsp oregano

1 tsp cumin

1/4 tsp red pepper

 

Does this sound all right?
