  • 1 pound dry black beans

  • cold water, or as needed

  • ½ cup lentils

  • 2 tablespoons dry roux mix

  • 1 green bell pepper, diced

  • 1 (10.75 ounce) can condensed tomato soup

  • 2 tablespoons white sugar

  • 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon

  • 1 teaspoon nutmeg

  2. Drain and rinse beans thoroughly; place in a large pot. Cover with 1 inch of water; add lentils. Bring mixture to a boil; stir in roux mix until fully incorporated. Cover, reduce heat, and simmer until beans are tender, about 30 minutes.
