• 2 cups black beans (dried – soak over night for optimal nutrients). Boil black beans in salted water for 45 min or until soft.
  • 1 red onion, diced small
  • 1 jalapeño pepper, seeded and diced small
  • 2 tbsp vegetable oil (to sauté)
  • 1 tsp lime juice (maybe two depending on how juicy)
  •  Salt pepper to taste
  • ½ cup Cilantro, chopped


Add oil to large pan and heat. Sauté the red onion and jalapeño peppers until onions are translucent and fragrant. If you want more spice add seeds and more pepper. Drain the black beans and add to pan. Sauté for 8-10 minutes until well mixed with pepper and onion. Add salt and pepper to taste then add lime juice and mix well. Squish the black beans until half is squished and half is left whole. The cilantro can be added until well mixed. Do this either on heat or off, depending on how dry you like the mix.

Lime adds a fresh flavour to the beans.
