DIRECTIONS

  • Saute onion ,tomatoes ,garlic ,and jalapeno in 2 tbsp oil or ghee until onion is transparent and tomatoes are softened.
  • Add tomato paste and stir. Add a few tbsp water and stir again being careful not to let it burn. Turn heat to low and let it simmer for a minute.
  • Pour in kidney beans along with 1 cup of water and bring to a simmer.
  • Add salt, pepper, and cumin.
  • Simmer for 10 minutes on low.
  • Add cilantro and cook until the dish thickens about another 5-10 minutes The sauce should coat the back of the spoon.
  • You can crush the beans with a potato masher after step 5 if you don't like them whole. I puree in the blender before adding to the saucepan for my children because they don't like it chunky.
