Things To Grab

    Hyvee Culinary Expert Tip
    Chile peppers contain volatile oils that can burn your skin and eyes. When working with hot peppers, wear protective gloves.

  2. Add broth, cumin and coriander to Dutch oven. Bring to boiling; reduce heat. Simmer, covered, for 10 minutes. Add cream cheese and beans. When cream cheese is melted, stir in ¾ cup cilantro and tortilla chips. Cook for 5 minutes more. Season to taste with salt.

    Hyvee Culinary Expert Tip
    To release extra flavor in any dish that calls for cilantro, chop up the stems and the leaves.
