3 cans kidney beans, drained and rinsed + 6 cups water
1 cup bulgar or cracked wheat
1 4 oz can tomato paste
1/2 red pepper, diced
1/2 green pepper, diced
1 medium carrot, diced
2 stalks celery, chopped small
1 jalapeno pepper, halved, seeded, and minced
2 - 4 thin slices fresh ginger, peeled, or 1 tsp dried
2 - 4 cloves garlic, peeled and minced
1/2 teaspoons chipotle chili powder or more for hotter taste
2 bay leaves (remove after cooking)
1/2 cinnamon stick
4 tablespoons olive oil
2 teaspoons each: paprika, gr. cumin, coriander
1 teaspoons each: thyme, basil, oregano
1 - 2 teaspoons salt
1 - 2 cup fresh or frozen corn kernels
1/2 c. minced parsley or cilantro

Kidney Beans:
1 cup dried dark red kidney beans
