    Chef Christine's Note:

    From Health Latin Cooking. The secret to low-fat is to use Canadian Bacon because it's lean and to drain the beans and use chicken stock for flavor without all the sodium. Enjoy.

    1. 1
      Heat the oil or lard in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add the bellpeppers, onions, scallions, bacon, garlic, cilantro, cumin, oregano, and bay leaf. Cook for 5 minures or until the vegetables are soft but not brown.
    2. 2
      Stir in the beans and wine. Bring to a boil over high heat. Stir in the sugar and 1 1/2 cups of the stock or broth. Reduce the heat to medium and simmer for 5 minutes. Remove bay leaf.
    3. 3
      Puree one-quarter of the bean mixture in a blender. Stir the puree into the simmering beans.
    4. 4
      Simmer for 2 minutes more, or until thick but still soupy. If the bean mixture is too thick add, more stock or broth. Season w/ salt and pepper.
