Recipe by What's Cooking?

I like to serve these sweet, smoky black beans over brown rice, with sautéed bitter greens (arugula or turnip greens, for instance) and sour cream.

Great flavors. I cut the amount of peppers in half, and all I could find was Sweet Hungarian Paprika, (not sure if that's the same thing) and served it over white rice. Wonderful.

Directions

  1. Heat olive oil over medium-high heat until it begins to smoke. Add onions, and cook until translucent. Add carrot and sauté until it begins to soften slightly.
  2. Turn heat to medium and add garlic, cumin, paprika, and minced chipotle peppers. Sauté for 1-2 minutes, then mix in water, tomato paste, and reserved adobo sauce. Stir to combine, then add beans immediately.
  3. When the beans are hot, add vinegar and honey or sugar. Cover and simmer over low heat for 10-15 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  4. Sprinkle with fresh cilantro before serving over rice.
