How To Make Easy Black Beans
This recipe really couldn’t be any easier. If you can use a can opener then you’re all set.
Start by preheating a medium saucepan over medium heat. Then toss in the chopped onion and cook for about 2-3 minutes. Now, add the garlic powder and cumin and stir until the onions are mostly covered with the spices. Let the mixture cook for a minute. Feel free to add a little water or veggie broth to keep everything from sticking if it’s needed.
Stir in the chopped chipotle pepper in adobo sauce and cook for just a few seconds. Drain and rinse one can of the black beans and add it to the saucepan. Now, add the second can of black beans, juice and all, and stir until everything is well combined.
Reduce the heat, let the beans simmer for 10-15 minutes, and season to taste with salt and pepper. Once the beans are hot they are ready.
And, that’s it!
