Why I Love This Recipe

When I was younger, I absolutely hated beans--or so I thought. The problem was every Tex-Mex restaurant I went to served refried beans. I still don't like refried beans but I have grown to love pretty much every other kind. This is one of my favorite ways to prepare black beans.


Ingredients You'll Need

Olive oil
1/4 cup chopped onion
1 clove garlic, minced
1 can black beans, drained and rinsed
1 tbsp. tomato paste
1 bay leaf
1 tsp. cumin
1/2 tsp. oregano
1/4 tsp. chili powder
1/2 cup chicken broth
squeeze of fresh lime juice


Directions

Heat EVOO in a skillet and add onions. Cook until tender. Add garlic and tomato paste and cook about 30 seconds to a minute. Add half the beans. Mash beans with a potato masher or other device.


Add remaining beans, chicken broth, bay leaf, cumin, chili powder and oregano. Simmer 15 minutes. Squeeze fresh lime juice over the top.
