  1. In a large pot or Dutch oven heat the oil over medium heat until shimmering. Add the chopped onion and pepper and cook until just tender and the onion is slightly brown.

  3. Add the garlic, tomatoes with juice, tomato paste, tomato sauce, broth, beans, corn, chipotle chili powder, chili powder, cumin, and salt. Stir well.
  4. Partially cover the pot (about ¾ of the way) with a lid and simmer on medium low for 30-45 minutes. Taste and adjust salt and spices to taste.
  5. Sprinkle with chopped green onion and serve.
