This colorful trio of beans is low in fat and full of protein. Look for canned chipotle chilies in spicy adobo sauce in the Mexican food section. Serve with a platter of sliced avocados and tomatoes drizzled with olive oil, and a basket of warm, whole-grain tortillas.

  1. In a heavy saucepan, heat olive oil and sauté onion, yellow pepper, and green pepper until softened, about 3 minutes. Add garlic, jalapeño, white pepper, cumin, tomatoes, and chipotles and cook, stirring, until softened, about 3 minutes.
  2. Stir in adobo sauce, beans, stock, and tomato sauce. Simmer, covered, for about 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  3. Add cilantro and cook for 1 minute. Crumble queso fresco on top, garnish with fresh cilantro, and serve hot.
