Ingredients: 1 pound ground beef (grass-fed and organic, if possible),1 red bell pepper, minced,1 small zucchini, minced,2 tablespoons dried minced onion (or ½ cup fresh chopped onion),8 oz tomato sauce,1/2 teaspoon chipotle chile powder or 1- 2 chopped (seeds removed) chipot,4 oz can diced green chiles,1/2 teaspoon salt,1/4 teaspoon coarsely ground black pepper,15 oz can black beans, drained and rinsed,1 cup frozen corn,1/2 cup chopped fresh cilantro
- Brown ground beef in a large skillet over medium-high heat.
- Meanwhile, mince vegetables (food processor is really nice for this). When the beef is almost cooked through, add the minced pepper and zucchini. Cook for 3-4 more minutes until some of the liquid cooks out and the beef is cooked through.
- Add diced onion, tomato sauce, chipotle powder, diced green chiles, salt, pepper, beans, corn, and 1/2 cup water. Cook another 4-5 minutes until about half of the liquid has cooked out and mixture is nice and saucy.
- Stir in cilantro and keep warm until ready to serve.
