Prep Time: 10 minutes Cook Time: 10 minutes Serves 4
2 (20 ounce) cans black beans, drained and rinsed
1 tablespoon olive oil
½ medium onion, chopped
3 garlic cloves, pressed or finely minced
2/3 cup chicken broth
1/8 teaspoon cumin
1/8 teaspoon coriander
1/8 teaspoon oregano
1/4 teaspoon each salt and black pepper
1 lime, juiced
Cheddar cheese, optional for garnish
In a saucepan on the stove, heat the olive oil to medium-high heat. Sauté onions for about 3 minutes or until they just start to become translucent. Add garlic and sauté for about 30 seconds more.
Add beans, broth, and remaining seasonings and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to a low simmer and simmer for about 5-7 minutes, stirring occasionally.
When beans are done cooking, remove from heat and add in fresh lime juice. Then use the back of a spoon or rubber spatula so mash ¼-1/2 of the beans, just to thicken the mixture. Serve topped with cheese or as desired.
