Orange Scented Brazilian Black Bean Stew


Tonight's meal made good use of the left-over ham bone from Easter dinner. This meal was healthy, delicious and filling. I hope you like it.

serves 8 ( 1/2 c. rice and about 1 c. stew = 6 points +)


  • 2 cans black beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1 ham bone with about 2 c. ham still on the bone
  • 4 c. fat-free chicken broth
  • 1-1/2 c. chopped onion
  • 2 jalapeno peppers, seeded and diced
  • 1 T. crushed garlic
  • 1 T. grated orange peel
  • 1/2 c. fresh orange juice
  • 1/2 c. sherry
  • 1/4 c. chopped, fresh cilantro
  • 4 c. hot, cooked Jasmine rice
Place all ingredients, except for cilantro and rice in a crock pot. Cover and cook on high 4 - 5 hours. Shred ham off the bone. Remove bone. Serve stew over rice garnished with cilantro.
