Jazzed up Black Beans

1 28 oz can black beans or the equivalent of cooked black beans (don’t drain)
1/4 c chopped sweet onion
1/4 c chopped red or yellow bell pepper
1/4 c chopped celery
1/4 c chopped/peeled carrot
2 cloves garlic peeled and minced
1 T cumin
1 t salt
olive oil

Coat the bottom of a decent sized pot with olive oil over medium high heat and saute onions, garlic, celery, carrots, and peppers till crisp tender, about 4-5 minutes. Dump in can of black beans and stir till all is heated through.

Great on it’s own over rice, or with carnitas, chicken, you name it! I like it with Costco’s pork Carnitas, and a side of rice.
