Savory Black Beans
1 can black beans
1 small yellow onion, diced
3 cloves garlic, pressed
water or cooking spray
1 small can Rotel or any other tomatoes with green chiles
black pepper, salt, cilantro to taste
Saute garlic and onion in water or oil until soft, taking care not to burn garlic. Add black beans and undrained Rotel, cooking at least 15-20 minutes until mixture thickens slightly. Add seasonings to taste and cook for at least five minutes more to allow tastes to meld. The only other seasoning I've ever added is a veggie bouillon cube to add depth to the flavor. Its very flavorful in its own right. Great with yellow rice and a salad.
