Easy Seasoned Black Beans

Normally I am so lazy when it comes to beans. I open up a can, drain and stir it into whatever dish I’m making. I decided to spice things up and make some yummy seasoned black beans that suit my lazy lifestyle. They were surprisingly really delicious, tasty enough to share with you!


1 can black beans

1/2 yellow onion (diced)

2 garlic cloves (minced)

1/2 lemon cut into 2 pieces

1 bay leaf

1 tsp red pepper flakes

2 tsp dried cilantro

few pinches of cumin

few pinches of oregano

1 tsp apple cider vinegar

3/4 cup of water

salt and pepper to taste



Seriously, brace yourself this gets complicated (sarcasm)! 

Add everything to a medium-sized pot. Bring to a boil for about 2-3 minutes. Lower the heat and cover, simmer for 15-20 minutes!


Sooooooo simple and sooooooooo delicious! I whipped up some guacamole, made Spanish rice, chopped lettuce, added chipotle salsa and toasted some tortillas for a complete meal with these beans.
