Brazilian Black Bean Soup

Brazilian Black Bean Soup Recipe
Brazil's cuisine often features smoky, grilled meats, but this healthy vegetarian bean soup recipe is completely meat-free. Instead, blackened jalapeños, fire-roasted tomatoes and smoked paprika provide the Brazilian flair. A little molasses adds a sweet-toasty note, and the kale, while not traditional, bumps up your daily veggie count.

Ancho Chicken Breast with Black Beans, Bell Peppers & Scallions

Ancho Chicken Breast with Black Beans, Bell Peppers & Scallions Recipe
In this healthy chicken recipe, the meat is rubbed with ancho chile powder, a spice made from dried poblano peppers. It adds mild heat and subtle smokiness to the rub on the chicken, but you can use regular chili powder here instead. This recipe makes an extra 1/2 cup of the black bean mash—try it wrapped into a burrito for lunch or as a taco filling.
