Beans For BreakfastPosted: January 11, 2013
Today was a good day to try something new. I have a friend who told me she eats beans for breakfast. Larry also used to eat beans for breakfast in Mexico. So why not . . . here’s my black bean breakfast recipe just for you.
Colorful Black Beans
1-15 oz can black beans, drained and rinsed
1 Tablespoon olive oil
1 1/2 cups diced bell peppers (whatever colors you have on hand)
1 small onion, diced
1 clove garlic, minced
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon New Mexican chili powder
Juice from one lime
Saute’ onion, peppers, and garlic for a few minutes. Don’t let your veggies get too cooked, they’ll lose all their pretty colors. Add black beans, spices, and lime juice and heat through. Serve with cilantro on top.
