So good! Try these as a side dish or on burritos, enchiladas, and tacos or in the Black Bean Layer Dip recipe. You can use pinto beans in place of the black beans in this recipe.
Heat a large skillet to medium heat and cook onions with oil until tender and then add jalapeño and garlic and continue to cook until onions are slightly golden brown. Add cumin and stir into mixture. Bring heat up to medium-high and stir the beans into the mixture. Add 1½ cups of water to canned beans or 1 cup of water to homemade. Bring mixture to a boil, then lower the heat and simmer for 15 minutes. When the liquid has reduced to half, mash beans until beans are smooth or consistency is as desired. This step can be done by hand or beans can be pureed in a food processor. Continue to cook for 5 more minutes. If beans become too dry, add a small amount of water. Add salt and pepper to taste. Serve.
