Doctored canned black beans

1 tablespoon olive oil

1 clove garlic, minced

1/2 medium onion, finely chopped

1/2 red bell pepper, finely chopped

1 (15.5-ounce) can black beans, rinsed and drained

1/2 teaspoon Adobo seasoning, optional (available at most super markets)

1/8 teaspoon ground cumin

1/3 cup water

Makes 2 servings.

Put olive oil and garlic in a small saucepan and heat to medium; when garlic just starts to sizzle, add onion and pepper and stir well. Continue cooking, stirring occasionally, until vegetables soften but do not brown, about 10 minutes.

Add drained beans and stir well; add seasonings and water and stir well. Turn heat to medium high and heat until beans just start to bubble. Reduce heat to medium-low and cook until beans soften and begin to break down, about 10 minutes.

Serve with cooked rice.
