To me when I have Mexican or even when I don’t this is a simple side dish that is so quick and easy and healthy. If I’m late and no time to cook, Grill up some chicken with my Mexican spice and serve this as a side and it is a hit. Everyone loves it and it is simple.

The smokiness of bacon and cumin and a hint of spice over rice makes it quick and easy.


  1. 1In a medium saute pan with olive oil on medium, saute onion and garlic, then add the beans, DO NOT drain or rinse, add the cumin, chili powder, any salt and pepper to your taste.
  2. 2Let it cook 15-30 minutes on low. I just let it cook while I am making the rest of my dinner. It is fine all by itself.
  3. 3Before serving, stir in the cilantro and a squeeze of lime if you have it. It is not necessary, I just like it. Optional. I serve this over any white rice (your favorite).
