Spicy Black Beans

Yes that taco is garnished with extra slices of avocado

Because a little beans go a long way, oh wait…

Spicy Black Beans

  • 2 cups dried black beans, soaked overnight
  • 14.5 ounce can diced tomatoes
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • 2 green onions, chopped
  • 1/2 tsp cumin seeds, ground to powder with mortar and pestle
  • 1 large chipotle pepper in adobo, rinsed diced fine
  • 1 tbsp Tapitio or other hot sauce
  • salt/pepper to taste
  • 1/4 cup chopped cilantro

Rinse beans and return to soaking pan. Add everything but the cilantro and bring to a boil, stirring frequently. Lower to a simmer and add salt and pepper to taste. Cook until beans are tender and liquid is thick, about an hour or a little longer. Remove from heat and stir in cilantro. Taste and adjust seasoning and heat as desired. Garnish with additional green onion if desired.

    You know how to win a Brazilian’s heart! I don’t cook it here that often, but when I go home my Mom makes it daily, and her version is not too different from yours, a few details only here and there. She won’t put hot sauce, but I do when I make mine (don’t tell her that!)

    I realize these are spicy black beans, but I don’t think I’d need more hot sauce once the chipotle chili in adobo went in there … wowza!

    We made a spicy bean last night for our fajita’s on Saturday! This recipe sounds delicious, I really must try to find chipotle in adobo sauce! Happy Friday.

    Beans, beans … the magical fruit. The more you eat … the more you ……… get full? These look great. Like the addition of the chipotle pepper.

  18. Yum! These sound delicious. Plus, it has cumin which is something I don’t use that often.

  19. Jessica says:

    Mmm, I usually season mine with cumin and chipotle as well!
