I posted this a few weeks ago but it never appeared, so I'm trying again.
We enjoyed this simple and quick chili.

Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method
-------- ------------ --------------------------------
2 cups chopped onions
2 garlic cloves -- minced or pressed
1/2 cup water
1 tablespoon ground cumin
1 tablespoon ground coriander
1 cup prepared Mexican-style red salsa *
2 red and/or green bell peppers -- chopped
3 cups cooked black beans
(two 15-ounce cans -- drained and rinsed)
3 cups canned whole tomatoes -- with juice
2 cups fresh or frozen corn kernels
salt to taste
Tabasco or other hot pepper sauce to -- to taste
1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro -- or to taste
This is a colorful black bean dish that requires little effort to make and
is attractive enough to serve on a special occasion. Serve plain or on
rice or polenta. If you have leftover chili, you could use it to make a
variation of Black Bean Chilaquile. Just use leftover chili, tortillas,
greens, and Cheddar cheese. The chili can replace the beans-and-corn layer
in the chilaquile-and the salsa layer, too, since this chili is already spicy.
*Prepared salsa gives this chili a "finished" flavor without a lot of
cooking. We recommend a clean-, crisp-flavored salsa, such as La Victoria
brand Casera Salsa or Pace brand Picante Sauce.
Serves 4 to 6. Total time: 35 minutes
In a covered soup pot, cook the onions and garlic in the water on high
heat, stirring frequently, for about 5 minutes. Add the cumin and
coriander and stir on high heat for a minute. Stir in the salsa and bell
peppers, lower the heat, cover, and simmer for about 5 minutes, stirring
occasionally. Add the black beans and tomatoes; simmer for 10 minutes.
Add the corn and continue to cook for 10 minutes. Add salt and Tabasco to
taste. Stir in the cilantro, if desired.
