Spicy Lentil and Black Bean Chili

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups dry French lentils
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 large onion, diced
  • 1 large sweet red pepper, diced
  • 2 tablespoons minced garlic
  • 3 tablespoons chili powder
  • 2 teaspoons dried oregano
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons ground cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 29 ounce can fire-roasted diced tomatoes with chiles
  • 2 15 ounce cans black beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1/2 cup fresh chopped cilantro

Directions

  1. Place lentils in a large sauce pan and cover with water by several inches; bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low and simmer until lentils are tender but retain a little bite, about 10 to 15 minutes; drain well and set aside.
  2. Meanwhile, heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Cook onion, pepper and garlic, stirring often, until vegetables are softened, about 10 minutes.
  3. In a cup, combine chili powder, oregano, cumin, cayenne and salt; add to skillet and stir well to combine. Cook, stirring often, about 1 minute.
  4. Add tomatoes and their juice, and beans to skillet; stir well to combine. Cover skillet and simmer so flavors can blend, about 5 to 10 minutes. Fold in lentils and cilantro; serve.
