• 1 cup chopped onion
  • 4 garlic cloves
  • 2 jalapenos, minced (seeds removed if you want less heat)
  • oil for cooking
  • ½ tsp ground cloves
  • sea salt and pepper
  • 14 oz can of diced tomatoes
  • 4 cups cooked black beans, drained with liquid reserved
  1. Sauté onions and garlic in oil until fragrant and translucent.
  2. Add jalapenos, sprinkle with seasoning and continue to saute for 1-2 minutes, being careful not to scorch the spice.
  3. Stir in tomatoes and beans.
  4. Simmer the mixture gently while smashing the beans.
  5. A potato masher works well for this. I used my pastry blender and the back of a wooden spoon.
  6. Continue to simmer, smash and stir until mixture thickens.
  7. Add some reserved bean liquid it mixture becomes too thick.
  8. Taste and add more seasoning if desired.
