Black Bean Ragout

Ever go to a Mexican restaurant just to eat the little side of beans because they are so delicious?  No?...  Guess I am alone then....  Oh well--so I stumbled across a black bean ragout recipe from the smitten kitchen cookbook which looked promising in that it will make a whole pot to satisfy my cravings (no--I am NOT pregnant--can't someone just have a hankering for delicious food???).  Guess what?  smitten kitchen delivers the goods--again!  It's easy too!

{Serve the beans however you like--cheese, cilantro, plain, you pick!}

{Mixing some of the ingredients together}

{Adding garlic and onions--yum!}

{Simmer for about 1 hour}

Black Bean Ragout

Serves 4 (or 1 if you are really craving it!)


1 medium onion, finely diced
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 tablespoon ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
2 teaspoons paprika
2-15 oz cans black beans, drained and rinsed
1/2 teaspoon chili flakes (less if you want less heat)
2 tablespoons tomato paste
1 cup beef broth
1 tablespoon lime juice
  1. Put all the ingredients, except lime juice, in a pot and mix together.
  2. Simmer for 1 hour or until beans are tender and flavorful.
  3. Add lime juice.
  4. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
I served this with some deer fajitas I made.  So delicious and easy for Taco Night!
