This side dish is so simple. It really can go with any meal, but my favorite is to have it with tacos, over nachos, or with smoked pork and rice. It has no added oil or fat. The flavor all comes from vegetables.
1 can black beans – drain and rinse
1/4 cup diced red bell pepper
1/4 cup diced yellow onion
1 small jalapeno – sliced
1/4 tomato diced – any kinds work
1 tsp cumen
1.5 cans of water – use the rinsed bean can
1 tsp chicken bouillon
1 handful fresh cilantro leaves
Combine all ingredients in a saucepan and cook on medium heat for about 15-20 minutes or until the liquid turns a bit cloudy.
This never quite tastes the same. Sometimes I add a bit of leftover bacon. Sometimes I add fresh garlic. It is always fantastic. I have to say the combination above is my favorite. Tonight i made the same thing bit with pinto beans instead of black beans. Still wonderful!
Here are the peppers I picked yesterday. It is November and the garden is still going strong!
