Black Beans


Black Beans

This is a very simple and delicious side dish.  If you are concerned about the sodium content of the canned black beans, do what I do, rinse the beans under cold water before placing them in the baking dish.

Ingredients:

2 cans  Black Beans, drained and rinsed

1 tbsp. All purpose spice rub

1 tbsp. Cumin

½         Chili, chopped (optional, if you like the heat use it)

½ Cup Shredded, Mexican blend, cheese

Directions:

Preheat the oven to 370.  Place the rinsed beans in an oven safe baking dish and mix in the spice rub, cumin, and chili (if using).  Cover the top of the beans with the shredded cheese.  Cook in the oven till the cheese melts.  Do not overcook or the beans will dry out.  If you like your cheese crispy add a little water to the beans before cooking.  Remove from oven and let rest for about 5 minutes.
