From the kitchen of:

 Recipe card from Penzey's Spices


 1 yellow onion, diced

2 bell peppers, any color, diced

2 TB oil or butter

2 15-oz cans black beans, rinsed adn drained

1 15-oz can Ro-tel (diced tomato / green chile mix)

2 c salsa

1 1/2 tsp ground cumin

1 1/2 tsp Adobo Seasoning OR Arizona Dreaming Seasoning

2 c grated cheese

2 c tortilla chips plus extra as desired


 Heat the oil or butter over medium heat; add onions and pepper, and cook until soft (5-10 min).

Add the black beans, Ro-tel, salsa, and spices. Bring to a boil, then reduce to a simmer. Stir from time to time, and let cook until reduced - about 15 minutes. It should be the consistency of a thick stew.

Preheat oven to 350°F and spray a 2-quart baking dish or 8x8 square pan with nonstick cooking spray. 

Spoon some of the black bean mixture into the dish, then layer wtih cheese and crushed tortilla chips. Repeat, ending with cheese. 

Cover tightly with foil and cook for 40 minutes.

Remove foil, adn broil for a minute to give the cheese a nice finish. 

Let sit for 10 minutes before serving. 

You may need to cut/separate the cheese on top so you can dip more easily.
