Potato and Lentil Stew

1 large onion, chopped
2 medium carrots, chopped
2 teaspoons olive oil
4 teaspoons chili powder
3 garlic cloves, minced
3 teaspoons ground cumin
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1 carton (32 ounces) vegetable broth
3/4 cup dried lentils, rinsed
2 cans (10 ounces each) diced tomatoes and green chilies
3-1/2 cups frozen cubed hash brown potatoes, thawed (I will use cubed potatoes)
1 can (16 ounces) kidney beans, rinsed and drained
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
In a Dutch oven, saute onion and carrots in oil until tender. Add the chili powder, garlic, cumin and oregano; cook 1 minute longer.
Stir in broth and lentils. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 18-22 minutes or until lentils are tender. Stir in the tomatoes, potatoes, beans, salt and pepper. Return to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer 10-15 minutes longer or until potatoes are tender. Yield: 6 servings (2-1/2 quarts).
