Ingredients

  • 1 tsp canola oil
  • 1 large green pepper
  • 1 small onion
  • 1 poblano chili
  • 2 cups halved cherry tomatoes (I used Black Cherry)
  • 1 cup sweet white corn kernels
  • 1 can black beans (canned including liquid)
  • 2 tablespoons hot chili powder(1)

Directions

  • Directions:
  • Heat oil in small to medium cast iron skillet while chopping onion and green pepper into cubes. Sautee onion and green pepper until soft.
  • Meanwhile, cut poblano into halves or quarters, core and seed. "Fire Roast" by placing poblano quarters skin side up in 500° F toaster oven for about 5 minutes or until blackened. Remove quarters (careful, they are hot) and drop into ice water to remove skin (or use the traditional method to fire roast the pepper.)
  • Chop poblano and add to pan along with halved cherry tomatoes, corn, black beans, and liquid from can. Stir in chili powder. Note: the canned black beans that I used contained enough salt to adequately season the entire dish. No extra salt was needed. However, it may be added to taste.
  • Warm, stirring gently and infrequently until the tomatoes soften. Serve with a garnish of Four Ingredient Cooling Cucumber Salsa and tortilla chips.
  • Option: For a more smoky chili flavor, you may also 'fire roast' the green pepper and the corn.

Notes

Ok, I'll admit it: I am a total chili head. What's better than spicy chili heat plus fresh produce from the garden?
