Un"fried" Black Beans

My friend Leslie brought these over one night and Gray and I both flipped out over them. We love black beans and this recipes is easy with a lot of flavor!!! Also, Gray and I can eat a whole recipe of these by ourselves, when we have guests over we triple or quadruple the recipe. It's very simple to multiple.

1 14oz can black beans
1 cup chicken or vegetable broth
1 tsp garlic (chopped)
1 tsp cumin
1 tsp chili powder
1 tsp sea salt
1 tsp fresh pepper
1/4 cup onion diced
1/3 cup shredded pepper jack (optional)

Combine everything in a pot on the stove and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer for 20 to 30 minutes. Drain the beans and reserve the liquid. Mash the beans and add back as little or much liquid until you get the consistency that you like. Optional: Place in a dish and top with cheese. Place under the broiler until cheese is bubbly.


  1. Do your drain the cans of beans or put them into the pot juice and all?

  2. LOVE the beans! You guys must like it spicy! I doubled the recipe but only used 1/2 tsp of chili powder and it was still pretty spicy!

  3. Juice and all. glad you liked them :)
