Quick Black Beans - Olive Branch Oil & Spice

Quick Black Beans

Dec 31, 2023

I love these quick and delicious black beans that are simmered with onion, garlic, cumin and bay. They’re my go for Chicken Enchiladas or with Steak Fajita Bowls - and the only time I don’t rinse canned beans.


  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

  • 1 onion, diced

  • 2 cloves garlic, grated

  • 1 teaspoon cumin

  • 1 teaspoon salt

  • 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper

  • 1 bay leaf

  • 2 cans black beans (with juices)


  1. Heat oil in a pot over medium heat. Add the onion and saute for about 5 minutes. Add the garlic, cumin, cayenne, and salt and cook for about 1 minute.

  2. Add the black beans and bay leaf and simmer for about 15 minutes
