Black-Bean and Corned-Beef Soup


INGREDIENTS

2 tablespoons cooking oil
1 onion, chopped
2 carrots, diced
2 ribs celery, diced
1 red bell pepper, diced
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
3 cups water
3 cups canned low-sodium chicken broth or homemade stock
2 cups drained and rinsed canned black beans (one 19-ounce can)
1 jalapeño pepper, seeds and ribs removed, minced
1/2 pound sliced deli corned beef, cut crosswise into thin strips
1 1/2 tablespoons red- or white-wine vinegar
1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley

DIRECTIONS

In a large pot, heat the oil over moderate heat. Add the onion, carrots, celery, bell pepper, and 1/2 teaspoon of the salt and cook, stirring occasionally, until the vegetables start to soften, about 10 minutes.
Add the water, broth, and the remaining teaspoon of salt to the pot. Bring to a boil. Reduce the heat and simmer until the vegetables are tender, about 10 minutes. Stir the beans and jalapeño into the soup and simmer for 5 minutes more.
Remove the pot from the heat and stir in the corned beef, vinegar, and parsley.
Make Ahead: If you make the soup ahead of time, wait to stir in the last three ingredients until you're ready to serve. Otherwise, the flavor of the corned beef will leach out into the broth, the vinegar will lose its bite, and the parsley will turn brown

Paula Deen's Gorilla Bread

1/2 cup granulated sugar
3 teaspoons cinnamon
1/2 cup (1 stick) butter
1 cup packed brown sugar
1 (8-ounce) package cream cheese
2 (12-ounce) cans refrigerated biscuits (10 count)
1 1/2 cups coarsely chopped walnuts or 3/4 cup chopped walnuts + 3/4 cup chopped pecans

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

Spray a bundt pan with nonstick cooking spray (I found success with a regular round pan). Mix the granulated sugar and cinnamon. In a saucepan, melt the butter and brown sugar over low heat, stirring well; set aside. (Add a few splashes of rum and cook an additional minute or two. Or use a different flavored liqueur or flavored extract.)

Cut the cream cheese into 20 equal cubes. Press the biscuits out with your fingers and sprinkle each with cinnamon sugar. Place a cube of cream cheese in the center of each biscuit, wrapping and sealing the dough around the cream cheese. (I found it worked best to make these into balls and then squashing them back into biscuit size to fully enclose the cream cheese.)

Sprinkle 1/2 cup of the nuts into the bottom of the bundt pan. Place half of the prepared biscuits in the pan. Sprinkle with cinnamon sugar, pour half of the melted butter mixture over the biscuits, and sprinkle on 1/2 cup of nuts.

Layer the remaining biscuits on top, sprinkle with the remaining cinnamon sugar, pour the remaining butter mixture over the biscuits, and sprinkle with the remaining 1/2 cup of nuts. Bake for 30 minutes. Remove from the oven and cool
