Making home-cooked meals possible

Black beans


Black beans

  • 2 cans of black beans (drained)
  • 1-2 tablespoons of cumin
  • 1 table spoon of chili powder
  • 1 tablespoon of garlic powder
  • 1/4 of a medium onion chopped
  • 1 finely chopped jalapeno pepper (without the seeds)
  • 2 tablespoons of chopped cilantro
  • Salt to taste
  • Chicken stock as needed

Pour beans in a pot and then add: cumin, chili & garlic powder, onion, and jalapeno.  Cook over medium heat for about 5 minutes stirring frequently.  Lower heat to low-medium, add cilantro and salt as needed.  If the beans are too thick and you like them with more liquid, add tablespoons of chicken stock as needed.  Cook for about another 5 min on low heat after adding all ingredients needed.  The longer you are able to let it simmer/cook, the more flavorful it is.  I will sometimes let this simmer for about 20-30 min if I can (adding chicken stock if it starts to get too thick).
