3 slices bacon, diced
1 onion, diced
1 10 oz can* black beans
dashes of cumin, Cayenne, salt
balsamic vinegar (optional)
Cook the bacon until crispy. Drain off a little of the excess oil, then cook the onion until translucent. Add the beans and spices, and cook for however long you like. You can just heat it through, or you can stew it for a while until the flavors get all combined. Serve with rice, toast, whatever. Add balsamic vinegar if you love it.
Funny story, I was complaining on Twitter about having “nothing” to eat, and then I rattled off all the food in my house, and I decided bacon, onion, and beans sounded awesome. It is.
*I’ve tried many times to cook dried black beans, and I have failed each time. If anyone has any tips on how to cook dried beans and actually getting them soft, let me know.
