  • 2 cups vegetable broth
  • 5 cloves garlic, peeled and chopped
  • 1 15 oz can black beans drained
  • 2 handful tortilla chips
  • salt, pepper to taste

Optional add -ons

  • 1/2 cup corn, chopped and roasted
  • 1 bell pepper chopped
  • 2 tsp cumin
  • lime juice

Instructions

  1. Simply put all the ingredients except the black beans and tortilla chips into a casserole and cook for 15 minutes. Season with salt and pepper.
  2. After 10 minutes add the drained black beans, divide into bowls or plates. Serve with tortilla chips.

If you add the other optional ingredients, like corn, bell pepper, cumin, and at the end time juice for an extra flavor kick, you can go straight ahead and add these right at the beginning with the other ingredients, like quinoa, vegetable broth and garlic.
