Spicy Black Beans

It has taken me three days with one post each day to give you all of the recipes for last Tuesday's dinner.

I hope you don't mind.

Along with the cornmeal crusted tilapia with roasted tomato salsa and the fiesta cole slaw we also had spicy black beans.

Spicy Black Beans

2 cans black beans
1 tablespoon olive oil
2-3 cloves garlic,chopped
1/2 onion
red pepper flakes
1 cup water
Drain and rinse the beans. In a medium saucepan heat the oil with the garlic. Add the onion and cook until softened. Add as many or as little red pepper flakes as you would like. Add the beans and the water. Cook until most of the water is evaporated.

These beans went really well with the fish and the cole slaw. I was very pleased with this quick weeknight dinner. As a matter of fact I would have no problem serving this meal to company.

Yep, it's a keeper.
