Recipe by Irmgard
This recipe from a back issue of Homemakers Magazine is hearty, tasty and filling without the meat. I make it with orecchiette but you can use whichever short pasta shape you have on hand. It's delicious topped with sour cream and shredded cheddar cheese.
- 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
- 1 onion, peeled and chopped
- 1 tablespoon chili powder
- 1⁄2 teaspoon ground cumin
- 1 teaspoon dried oregano
- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt

- 2 garlic cloves, minced
- 19 ounces black beans, drained and rinsed
- 2 cups orecchiette, cooked
