  • 1 TB Ancho or chili powder
  • 2 cans black beans, drained or pinto, mixed whichever you prefer, drained, rinsed

  • In a skillet, add the oil and onion. Saute until the onions are getting soft. Add the jalapeno and the spices, stir. Add the drained beans and the stock. Bring to a boil and simmer for 20-40 minutes stirring often. The beans will soften and the stock will evaporate. Either mash with a potato masher for a “rough” texture or blend in a blender until smooth. Serve warm in taco’s or tostada’s or chill and use as a dip.
