1 Tablespoon Olive Oil
1 Clove of Garlic, peeled and finely diced
1 Medium Onion, peeled and sliced into ½ inch half moons

1 Tablespoon Cumin
1 teaspoon Chili Powder
2 teaspoons Kosher Salt
1 14.5 Ounce Can No-Salt Added Black Beans, drained and rinsed
1 14.5 Ounce Can Diced Tomatoes
Heat Olive Oil in medium skillet over medium heat. Add garlic and onions, toss to coat with oil. After 2 minutes add Red Pepper, Cumin, Chili Powder, and Salt (reduce salt to 1 teaspoon if canned beans contain added salt). Cook for 8 to 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add Black Beans and Tomatoes, increase heat to medium-high. Continue to cook until most of the liquid has evaporated, about 15 minutes, or until desired thickness/consistency.

**The picture shown is of a burrito made from my mexican black beans. I used one La Tortilla Factory Whole Wheat Tortilla (high fiber, low fat, only 100 calories), 1/4 cup reduced-fat mexican blend cheese, salsa, shredded romaine lettuce, and pickled jalapenos for each burrito.
