Add in the chives, dill, garlic powder, onion powder, and crushed red chili pepper flakes. Mix well and sauté for 2-3 minutes. Add the black beans, pinto beans, and cilantro. Mix well being careful not to crush the beans. Add the corn and lime juice. Add the cans of diced tomatoes with green chiles and mix to combine. Season with JF Universal Salt and fresh cracked black pepper. Add the beef broth and bring to a boil. Turn it down to simmer for 15 minutes or as long as you can. If you can make this the day before and let sit overnight. It helps to intensify the flavors. Garnish with your favorite toppings and enjoy.
