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.
