Bush Family Zuni Stew




  1. Place beans, bay leaf and oregano in a saucepan; cover with plenty of water and cook over medium heat for 1 1/2 to 2 hours.
  2. Remove from heat when beans are soft, but not mushy. Add salt. Drain beans, but save the broth.
  3. Heat oil in a large skillet; sauté onions over high heat for 1 to 2 minutes.
  4. Lower the heat, then add garlic, spices, and stir.
  5. Add a little bean broth so the chile powder doesn't scorch. Cook until onions begin to soften, about 4 minutes.
  6. Add tomatoes and cook for another 5 minutes.
  7. Stir in chiles and remaining vegetables, along with the cooked beans and enough of the broth to make a moist, thick stew.
  8. Cook at a high simmer until vegetables are done, about 20 minutes.
  9. Stir in cheese and chopped cilantro, and garnish with whole leaves of cilantro.
  10. Serve with cornbread or tortillas.
