The recipes that will make it on this blog are ones mostly created by my personal chef. He rarely “cheats”. I cheat all the time. And honestly, neither one of us call using canned anything cheating. But hey, technically I cheated. I was throwing together a meal after the end of a long work day. L-O-N-G! It was an Old El Paso tacos kind of night. TexMex all the way. We are proud to say that we love taco shell tacos – the kind made with taco seasoning in a packet. But, what can you serve with them?
I sauntered out to the garden and grabbed a couple serrano peppers and a handful of chives. And voila! Simply Black Beans! If you don’t have a garden, then just add WHATEVER pepper that is hanging out in your fridge (but do blister it) and throw in some chopped up onions (that you have sautéed a tad).
Read on for the recipe (and some great pictures of blistering peppers).
