You can make this recipe with black beans you've cooked yourself, or with the frozen beans from Vermont Bean Crafters, or a can of beans from the grocery store! If you want it spicier, you can add few dashes of hot sauce. This is a great omelette topping, as well as a taco bar ingredient. 

  • 2 cups black beans
  • 3 onion tops or scallion greens, sliced
  • 2 teaspoons sunflower or olive oil
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 teaspoons lime juice
  • chile powder, cayenne pepper, chipotle powder, paprika, or whatever peppery spices make you happy
  1. Strain the beans, and place them in a mixing bowl. Add the other ingredients. 
  2. Season to taste. Make the beans as tangy, salty, and spicy as you desire.
