Sarasota's Spicy Simple Black Beans

Recipe by SarasotaCook
READY IN: 15mins




  • Vegetables -- In a large saute pan, heat to medium and add the olive oil and saute the onion and garlic and cook on medium, not too high, you want them to sweat more. Cook 4-5 minutes.
  • Spices -- Add in the green chilies, salsa, cumin, chili powder, salt and pepper and mix well, still on medium heat. Now add in the beans and stir to combine.
  • Just let it hang out and cook on low heat while you prepare your main course. As it simmers I often add just a little chicken broth for some moisture. Each time it is different, 1/4 cup up to 1/2 cup, depending on how long they simmer. After 5 minutes the beans are done, but if you are still waiting on your main dish to be ready, maybe add a little more broth as the beans simmer so they don't dry out.
  • Right before serving -- taste for salt and pepper and stir in the cilantro. That's it!
