Black Beans

After hitting up a chain called Pollo Tropical in Miami and solidifying our love of beans & rice, Marcus and I decided it was time to learn how to make a solid black bean.  I like making these for the obvious (beans & rice), but more importantly, they’re absolutely delicious.

Ingredients

  • Finely chopped onion (usually, it’s whatever I have in my fridge, but don’t do more than a half)
  • One can black beans
  • 2 T butter
  • Salt, pepper, red pepper flakes
  • Lime juice

Instructions

  • Melt butter in pot on medium-low heat.  Incorporate finely chopped onion.  Saute until soft.  Add a squeeze of lime juice, salt, pepper and red pepper flakes to taste.
  • Dump beans into pot (juice and all!)
  • Turn heat up to medium.  Stir mixture until liquid has reduced and beans have thickened (you will know).  Note: for beans & rice, your beans should not be as thick as they would be if you were going to use them in a wrap or on pizza (they should be very thick).
  • Serve, or refrigerate and use throughout the week as needed (makes about four servings).
