DIRECTIONS

  • Soak beans overnight in water to cover.
  • If you don't soak the beans overnight:
  • In a large pot over medium heat, place the beans in three times their volume of water.
  • Bring to a boil and let boil 10 minutes.
  • Cover, remove from heat and let stand 1 hour.
  • Drain and rinse.
  • In a crock pot, combine soaked beans and 1 1/2 quarts fresh water.
  • Cook for 3-7 hours on high, depending on how hot your cooker gets.
  • Stir in carrot, celery, onion, garlic, bell pepper, jalapeno, lentils and tomatoes.
  • Season with chili powder, cumin, oregano, black pepper, red wine vinegar and salt.
  • Cook on low, 2 to 3 hours.
  • Stir the rice into the crock pot in the last 20 minutes of cooking (if using brown rice add the last 1 hour).
  • Puree half the soup with a blender or food processor, then pour back into the pot before serving.
  • Serve with lime wedges, sour cream, and cilantro.
  • Enjoy!
