• 1 onion finely chopped
  • 3 cloves of garlic
  • 1 green pepper
  • 1 can of tinned tomatoes
  • 1 can of red beans (rinsed well)
  • 1 can of corn (make sure no added sugar in the corn
  • 1tsp cumin
  • some spicy chilly if you and your family like
  • (another good choice of spice is jalapeño! my favourite… delicious even if you get the jarred one and not fresh) 
  • salt and pepper to taste



  • start by sautéing the onion garlic and oil… when onions have sweated add the rest of the ingredients
  • add enough water to cover and let it cook for about 30 minutes on medium heat (this is not a soup so should not be too wet, but def not too dry!)
  • eat with some tortillas! (times grocery has the good corn tortillas, but if you prefer the normal ones, they are everywhere!)
