Frijoles negros a la mexicana

Beans are one of my favorite foods, I grew up eating them almost every day and now I do the same with my family. Last week I wanted to make black beans for lunch but I didn’t have a lot of time, so I went to my pantry and the fridge to see what I had, and in just a few minutes I had a beautiful and delicious bowl of black beans.

This is a perfect recipe to make when you are in a hurry and need a fast, delicious and nutritious meal.  Just add a few warm tortillas and you are set.

Fast Mexican Black Beans

4 portions

  • 2 T olive oil
  • 1 small white onion, finely chopped
  • 1 serrano pepper, finely chopped
  • 1 (14.5 oz) can chopped tomatoes
  • 1 (15 oz) can black beans
  • 1 (11 oz) can of corn, drained
  • Salt to taste
  • Pepper to taste

With a medium sized pot over high heat, pour in the olive oil. When oil is hot, turn down the heat to medium-high and add the onion and serrano peppers. Stir constantly until onion is soft and then add the tomatoes. Let them cook for 5 minutes and then add the black beans (with juice) and the corn (drained).  Add salt and pepper to taste.  Cover the pot and let it simmer for 12-15 minutes until all flavors are deliciously combined.

That’s it!

Pour in bowls and add a few warm tortillas.

¡Buen Provecho!
