  • cups Bob’s Red Mill® Orca Beans
  • 7 cups vegetable broth and/or water
  • cups yellow onion chopped, 1 large
  • ¾ cup poblano peppers chopped, 2 medium
  • 2 tablespoons jalapeno minced, 1 medium
  • 2 tablespoons garlic minced
  • 2 teaspoons dried cumin
  • teaspoons dried coriander
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ¼ cup fresh lime juice from 1 lime


  1. Sort and rinse orca beans and place in a large soup pot with vegetable broth and/or water. Cover and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low and let simmer until just soft, about 45 minutes.
  2. When beans have slightly softened, add the onion, poblanos, jalapeno, garlic, dried herbs, and spices, and salt. Continue to simmer on medium-low until the beans have fully softened, another 15 – 30 minutes.

  3. Add fresh lime juice just before serving.
