These super-easy Mexican Black Beans are packed with delicious flavor! Perfect in burritos, tacos, enchiladas, or served alongside any of your favorite Mexican dishes!




  1. Heat oil over medium high heat in a medium saucepan
  2. Add chopped onion, jalapeño and garlic. Sauté until the onions become translucent (about 3-5 mins)
  3. Add the seasonings (cumin, chili powder, and salt) and cook for an additional minute.
  4. Add the rinsed black beans, tomato sauce and diced tomatoes. You want there to be some sauce/liquid (this will boil off).  If too thick add chicken broth, a little bit at a time.
  5. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to low and simmer for 30 minutes or until the majority of the liquid has evaporated.
  6. Stir in chopped cilantro to taste.
