Instructions

Prep
1

Before starting, wash and dry all produce. Core, then finely chop jalapeño, removing seeds for less heat. (TIP: We suggest using gloves when prepping jalapeño!) Core, then finely chop green pepper. Finely chop cilantro. Strip oregano leaves from stems. Finely chop 1 tbsp oregano leaves (dbl for 4 ppl). Drain and rinse beans in a strainer.

Pickle jalapeño
2

Add vinegar, 1 tsp sugar and 1/8 tsp salt (dbl both for 4 ppl) to a small microwaveable bowl. Microwave in 15 sec increments, stirring between each, until sugar dissolves. (NOTE: This is your pickling liquid.) Add jalapeños, then stir to combine. Set aside.

Cook rice
3

Bring 1 1/4 cups water and 1/8 tsp salt (dbl both for 4 ppl) to a boil in a covered medium pot. Add rice, then reduce heat to low. Cover and cook until rice is tender and liquid is absorbed, 12-14 min. Remove pot from heat. Set aside, still covered.

Start stew
4

While rice cooks, heat a large pot over medium-high heat. When hot, add 1 tbsp oil (dbl for 4 ppl), then mirepoix and green peppers. Cook, stirring occasionally, until softened, 4-5 min. Add garlic puree, oregano, Cajun Spice Blend and half the cilantro. Cook, stirring often, until fragrant, 1 min. Add beans, broth concentrate, 1 1/2 cup water and 1/2 tsp salt (dbl both for 4 ppl). Bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce heat to medium and cook, uncovered, until stew reduces slightly, 10-12 min.

Finish stew
5

Remove pot from heat, then stir in 2 tsp pickling liquid (dbl for 4 ppl). Season with salt and pepper. Mash beans with a potato masher until roughly mashed. (TIP: Some beans will still be whole.)

Finish and serve
6

Drain jalapeños and discard remaining pickling liquid. Fluff rice with a fork, then divide between bowls. Ladle stew overtop, then sprinkle with remaining cilantro. Top with pickled jalapeños.
