This spicy bean stew reheats well so it can be made ahead and refrigerated until needed for mealtime. Add meat for an omni-version.

Oh wow - what a great stew! I halved the recipe and left out the onions, otherwise made just as specified. This stew has such a great and unusual combination of flavors, textures, and colors. It needs no meat - it's very filling and full of flavor. I served this over brown rice, with cornbread. Really enjoyed this - thanks for sharing this recipe! Made for Fall PAC 2009
