  • 1 medium yellow onion

  • 2 garlic cloves, minced

  • 3 big tomatillos, husks removed, washed, and chopped

  • 2 jalapeno chilies, diced (or less, or seeded, to reduce heat)

  • 15 oz can of tomato sauce

  • ?? chili powder to taste (if any)

  • 1 tsp ground cumin

  • 1 tsp dried oregano

  • 1/2 tsp ground black pepper

  • 3 cups cooked red kidney beans (or any bean available)

  1. In a large pot, heat the oil over medium heat. Add the onion and garlic, cover, and cook, stirring a few times until softened - about 5 minutes. Add the tomatillos and chilies and cook until softened, about 2 minutes. Stir in the tomato sauce, chili powder, cumin, oregano, salt, and pepper. Add the water and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to low and simmer for 30 minutes.
