This is a lovely filling for tacos, goes well on tostadas, or just is nice on the plate with some vegetables and rice.

I found the flavour a bit lacking and added more (double) cumin as well as a tsp of garlic. Surprisingly easy to make your own refried beans, which is a bonus. Made for ZWT - Zingo.
- 1 (15 ounce) can black beans
- 1 tablespoon oil
- 1⁄4 onion, chopped
- 1⁄4 teaspoon ground cumin
- 1⁄4-1⁄2 cup water
- fresh cilantro (optional)
Directions See How It's Made
- Open and drain the can of beans.
- In a pan, saute onions in the oil.
- When the onions are done, add cumin and cook until you can smell it roasting.
- Put onions, water, and beans in a blender or magic bullet. Give it a good whirl until there are no whole beans left.
- Return beans mixture to the pan and heat.
- Add salt to taste and more water if necessary.
- When hot, remove from heat and garnish with cilantro, if desired.
