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.
