Black Bean Chili

3 T Vegetable oil
2 lg Onions; chopped
2 Green peppers; chopped
4 Cloves garlic; minced
1 lb Beef stew meat; cut into 1-inch cubes
2 lb Boneless pork butt
1 28-oz can whole tomatoes; reserve liquid
1/4 To 1/3 cup chili powder
1 To 2 jalapeno chili peppers; chopped (remove seeds)
2 T Ground cumin
ds Cayenne pepper
salt (optional)
Freshly ground black pepper
2 c Black beans; cooked
1/2 c Dry red wine
Cheddar cheese; grated
Fresh cilantro; chopped
Red onions; chopped
Sour cream


Heat oil in large Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Add 2 onions, bell peppers, and garlic and saute until tender, about 14 minutes. Transfer mixture to a bowl using a slotted spoon. Add beef and pork to pan and cook over medium-high heat until meat is no longer pink, stirring occasionally, approximately 8 minutes or so. Return onion mixture to pan. Now add tomatoes with the reserved liquid, chili powder, chili peppers, cumin, and cayenne pepper. Season with salt (optional) and pepper. Cover the pan and simmer until beef and pork are just about tender (stir the pan every once in a while), about 1 hour.

Add black beans and the wine to chili. Simmer uncovered until meat is tender and the chili begins to thicken. This will probably take about 25 minutes. When chili is finished, ladle into bowls. Serve with cheese, cilantro, red onions and sour cream in separate little bowls.
