DIRECTIONS

  • Sauté the bacon until crispy. Remove bacon and reserve for another use, but leave the bacon drippings in the pan.
  • Add the chopped tomatoes, chopped scallions, and cumin to the pan. Sauté them in the bacon fat until they are soft, about 5 to 8 minutes.
  • Add the beans (including liquid) to the pan. Add sugar, water, and the chicken bouillon. Bring to a boil, and simmer for 10 minutes more, until most of the water has evaporated and the beans have thickened.
  • Remove from heat and stir in the chopped cilantro.
  • Serve with rice.
