Quick Black Beans

Prep: 10 minutes Cook: 15 minutes

Serves:4-6

Ingredients

  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 1 red bell pepper, chopped
  • 1/2 tsp garlic, crushed
  • 2-14.5 ounce cans fire-roasted tomatoes, chopped
  • 2-15 ounce cans black beans, drained and rinsed
  • 2 tbsp green chilies, chopped
  • 1/2 tsp cumin
  • 1/2 tsp chili powder
  • 1 tbsp fresh cilantro, chopped
  • 1/8 tsp chipotle powder

Directions

Place the onion, bell pepper and garlic in a non-stick saute pan. Cook, stirring frequently, until onion softens slightly and turns a slight golden color. Add the remaining ingredients, except the cilantro, and simmer uncovered for about 15 minutes, stirring occasionally. Stir in the optional cilantro before serving, if desired. Serve this over rice, or in a bowl to soak up the flavorful juices. This tastes like it cooked much longer than only 15 minutes.
