BEANS ON THE SIDE
BLACK BEANS WITH CUMIN
Remove the seeds from the jalapeno and finely dice. Mince the garlic. Add the garlic, jalapeno, cumin and olive oil to a pot and saute over medium heat for about five minutes or until the jalapeno and garlic have softened.
STEP 2: Add the beans (do not drain) and heat through (another 5-10 minutes). Serve hot with optional garnishes (sour cream, cheddar cheese, green onions, cilantro).
