Lamb and Black Bean Chili

Lamb and Black Bean Chili



The ancho chile is a dried poblano pepper. It has a somewhat sweet and earthy flavor with a medium dose of heat.


  1. In medium bowl, combine lamb, 1 teaspoon salt and 1/2 teaspoon pepper; toss to evenly coat. In Dutch oven, over medium-high heat, heat oil; add lamb, yams, onion, ancho chile powder, garlic, cumin and oregano. Cook, stirring frequently, for 5 minutes. Stir in tomatoes with their liquid, broth and remaining 1/2 teaspoon salt. Bring to a boil; reduce heat to medium and simmer, uncovered, 35 minutes, stirring occasionally. Stir in black beans. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer 10 minutes stirring often to prevent burning.
  2. To Serve: Ladle chili into bowls; top with crumbled feta and sliced green onions.
