Best Black Beans
April 19, 2011

This was fantastic! Like everyone else, I made some revisions: Cut down on the onion (half a small onion, minced very fine) and doubled the garlic. Sauteed the onion and garlic in olive oil until soft and browned. Drained the beans and added them to the pot with about 3/4 can of chicken broth. Added the cayenne pepper and 1/4 tsp of cumin. Salted and peppered. Simmered for about 20 minutes or until most of the liquid has evaporated. Dress with about 1 tsp of lime juice. Its delicious!!! I also threw in about 1/2 cup of roasted corn from Trader Joe's towards the end which gave it a nice textural interest. I omitted the cilantro completely because I'm not a fan of cilantro but added the cumin for more flavor and it turned out amazing! Served with steak fajitas.
