1 can chickpeas
8 ounces beef stew
1 onion finely chopped
1 tbsp pepper paste
2 tbsp oil
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp black pepper
3 cups water


In a dutch oven, Saute chopped onion with 2 tbsp oil until golden brown. Add pepper paste and toss it with a big spoon to combine. Add beef stew and stir a few times. Let the beef stews release juice and soak it again. Add 3 cups water, put a lid on it and let it simmer for 40 minutes or so.

Add chickpeas and simmer it for 10 minutes. turn the heat off. serve warm with any kind of pilaf.

if you want to use dry chickpeas(garbanzo beans), you ll need to soak the chickpeas in water overnight and then add chickpeas with beef stews while you are cooking, so chickpeas will become tender.
