When I read this recipie I wasn’t expecting much. It looked like a basic recipie…but when I made them I could not believe how so little work could make SUCH a flavorful dish. I couldn’t stop eating these. This one is a keeper for sure. I got lots of request for these, even from people who don’t love beans. Try this one at least once and you will be suprised. These can also be made a few days in advance and that is always the best kind of recipie to keep in the back of your books.
3 strips of bacon
1/2 c onion, diced (I buy the frozen diced onion in the frozen veggie section..perfect for recipies like this)
1/2 cup green bell pepper, seeded and diced
2 T. minced garlic
1 can (30 oz) black beans
1/2 c chicken broth
Saute bacon in a medium pot over medium heat. When the bacon is crispy, remove from pan and crumble. Drain most of the bacon grease, but save a few tablespoons to saute the veggies. Add the green pepper and onion to the bacon grease and saute until the veggies are tender (about 6 or 7 minutes). Add garlic and cook one more minute. Add beans and broth and cook down for about 20 minutes. The beans should have some liquid in them, but not be “soupy”. If they are too “soupy”, just cook them
