this is adapted from a Barefoot Contessa recipe. use whatever beans you like. the tomatoes i like are Muir Glen fire roasted. any bell pepper color is fine, i just like the mix.

Made this tonight and it was absolutely delicious! I used leftover chicken from a roaster we had Friday. also substituted 28 oz chopped tomatoes, 14.5 oz fire roasted tomatoes with green chilis, 3 cups chicken stock and 1 Tbsp tomato paste in place of the diced tomatoes, sauce and 2c stock. I will make this again for sure
