Long time, no chat…. Things have been crazy busy here at Your Forever Nutrition Counseling and I apologize for taking a bit of a break from this blog.

Any how  – I am back and have a DELICIOUS recipe to share with all of you.  Last night, was one of those nights when I had nothing planned for dinner.  A  blizzard was on the horizon and I  literally opened the cupboards and asked for a divine intervention for dinner!  The gang loved it, so I thought I would share.  It is kind of a mix between a Chili and a Stew.

Chunky Veggie Stew

INGREDIENTS

2 tbl olive oil

2 large onions, chopped

1 red pepper, chopped

1 yellow pepper, chopped

1-2 tsp oregano

ground black pepper to taste

1 tbsp brown sugar

2 (15 ounce) cans black beans rinsed and drained
