Fiesta Black Beans

If you are looking for a fast easy side dish to accompany a mexican or southwestern meal you have found it. This literally took like 12 minutes to prepare including the prep. I made these beans to go with the tamales above, and they complimented the entire meal. We had a bit left over, which is fine because we'll get to eat them tomorrow. Which means they will have more time for the flavors to mingle.

Fiesta Black Beans

1 can black beans drained and rinsed
1/3 cup onions chopped
1/3 cup poblano pepper chopped
1/3 cup grape tomatoes chopped
2 garlic cloves minced
1 Tbs. chopped cilantro
1 Tbs. chili powder
1 Tbs. cumin
salt and pepper to taste
1 Tbs. canola oil
1/4 cup water

Heat a med. sized skillet over medium heat. Add canola oil and heat until shimmering. Add onions, poblanos and tomatoes. Cook until onions start to caramelize, about 5 minutes. Ad the remaining ingredients and simmer until liquid has been absorbed about 5-8 minutes.

Second post about beans and now I need to do beans tomorrow. Who craves beans? This looks fantastic. I'm tempted to make a paste! And I'm with Chef Gregory about the beer.
