  1. Place the dry beans in a big container and cover them with cold water. Let them soak overnight. Once they’ve soaked, drain and rinse them.
  2. In a large pot, heat some oil over medium heat. Add the red onion and garlic and cook until they become soft, which should take about 2 min.
  3. Now, toss in the bell pepper, jalapeño, the soaked beans, and vegetable broth. Bring everything to a boil, then lower the heat to a simmer and let it cook for about 20-25 min.
  4. Add the rinsed quinoa, diced tomatoes, corn kernels, tomato sauce, all the spices, and salt. Keep it simmering for another 15 min.
  5. Sprinkle some lime juice on top. If you like, you can garnish it with sour cream and cilantro. Enjoy your meal!
