Quick and Easy Black Beans

I found this recipe on I've always loved black beans, but putting lime in was a whole new idea for me. I made these for dinner last week but almost ate all of the beans before my husband got home. I just couldn't stop eating them, they are that good.

Quick and Easy Black Beans

2 Cans Black Beans, drained and rinsed
1 T olive oil
2/3 C diced onion
2-3 garlic cloves, pressed or finely minced
1 C vegetable broth
1/4 t cumin
1/4 t coriander
1/4 t oregano
1/2 t salt
1/4 t pepper
1 lime

In a saucepan on the stove, heat the olive oil to med-high heat. Saute onions for about 3 minutes or until they just start to become translucent. Add garlic and saute abut 30 seconds more. Add beans, broth, and remaining seasonings and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to a low simmer and simmer for about 7 minutes, stirring occasionally. When they are done cooking, remove from heat and add in a few squeezes of fresh lime juice. Then mash some of the beans. Just smash enough to thicken the sauce. They will thicken more upon standing. If you want a more soupy consistency, just add a little more broth. Serve as a side dish, or on top or rice.
