  • 2 cups black beans, rinsed and soaked 6 hours or overnight
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 4 tsp cumin seeds
  • 4 tsp dried oregano
  • 4 tsp paprika
  • 1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 3 tbsp chili powder
  • 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 3 onions, diced
  • 8 cloves garlic minced
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt

  • 2 tsp chipotle chili, minced
  • 1 tbsp rice vinegar or lime juice
  • 1/2 bunch cilantro chopped
  • garnishes (optional) pumpkin seeds, chopped red onion, avocado, salsa

Instructions

  • Drain the beans and put them in a pot with enough cold water to cover them by a couple of inches. Add the bay leaf.
  • Bring to a boil then lower the heat and simmer.
  • Heat a small skillet and add the cumin seeds. When they begin to color, add the oregano leaves and shake until they smell fragrant.
  • Remove the pan from the heat and add the paprika and cayenne. Stir everything together for a couple seconds, then remove from the pan.
  • Grind the spices in a coffee grinder or with a mortar and pestle to a coarse powder.
  • Heat the oil in a large skillet and saute the onions with 1/2 tsp of sea salt until they begin to brown.
  • Add the garlic, ground spices and chili powder. Cook for another 5 minutes.
  • Add the tomatoes with their juice, and about 1 tsp of chipotle chili.
  • Simmer for 15minutes, then add this mixture to the beans and enough water to cover the beans by at least 1 inch.
  • Continue cooking the beans slowly until they are soft, about an hour. Check the water level to keep the beans covered and add more water, as needed.
  • When the beans are tender, add salt to taste, more chipotle if desired and rice vinegar or lime juice to taste.
  • Just before serving, add the chopped cilantro,. Serve with garnishes.
