Stove Top

  1. Heat 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil in a large pot over medium heat. Stir in onion and bell pepper.  Cook 4-5 minutes, until somewhat softened. Add garlic and cook one more minute, until fragrant.
  2. Stir in the kidney beans, black beans, pinto beans, tomato, corn, vegetable stock, salsa, cumin and cayenne pepper. Bring to a boil, lower to a simmer, cover and cook 25-30 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  3. Remove from heat and uncover. Add salt to taste. Ladle into bowls and top with green onion, cheddar cheese and a dollop of sour cream (skip sour cream and cheddar cheese for vegan version).
