I got this recipe from our local paper and was quite intrigued with the roasted corn and the fact that it had grape juice. I have been trying to incorporate more beans into our diet and I think I succeeded with this recipe. The spices are a guideline....I did use a bit more and added hot pepper sauce for a bit more kick!

  2. Heat large pot over medium heat. Add olive oil (adding more if needed), onion and sweet potato. Saute for 5 minutes or until onion is golden and sweet potato is softened.
  3. Add garlic, beans, tomatoes, grape juice, tomato paste, red peppers, blackened corn, chili powder, cumin, coriander, oregano and basil. Stir well.
  4. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat, cover and simmer for 20 minutes, stirring occasionally.
