Chipotle Black Beans

We love black beans at my house, but we don’t particularly care for them straight out of the can.  With just a few added ingredients you can jazz up the flavor of the beans to give them a soft, smokey chipotle flavor.   Depending on how much chipotle sauce you add, you can kick up the heat a little, too!  They are so easy to make and adds a little more depth to any bean dish you create.   Below are two different chipotle black bean recipe variations.  One using canned beans and other using dried beans and a pressure cooker.

Using canned beans…

Simmer on stove top 2 cans black beans (do not drain or rinse), ½ tsp. oregano and ½ tsp. sage.

In a sauce pan sauté 2 tsp. olive oil, ¼ c. chopped onion, ¼ c. red chopped pepper and 1 large minced garlic clove.

Then add ¼ tsp. chili powder, ½ tsp. cumin ¼ tsp. salt and 2 T. chipotle sauce

Add the onion mixture to the beans and stir well.  Add 2 T. limeade, 1 tsp. apple cider vinegar and add more chipotle sauce if you want more heat.  Simmer for 10 minutes.

Chipotle Black Beans

Ingredients

  1. 2 cans black beans do not drain or rinse

  2. 1/2 tsp. oregano

  3. 1/2 tsp. sage

  4. 2 tsp. olive oil

  5. 1/4 cup onion chopped

  6. 1/4 cup red pepper chopped

  7. 1 large garlic clove minced

  8. 1/4 tsp. chili powder

  9. 1/2 tsp. cumin

  10. 1/4 tsp. salt

  11. 2 T. chipotle sauce

  12. 2 T. limeade

  13. 1 tsp. apple cider vinegar

Instructions

Bring to a simmer 2 cans black beans (do not drain or rinse), ½ tsp. oregano and ½ tsp. sage.

In a sauce pan sauté 2 tsp. olive oil, ¼ c. chopped onion, ¼ c. chopped red pepper and 1 large clove of minced garlic.

Then add ¼ tsp. chili powder, ½ tsp. cumin, ¼ tsp. salt and 2 T. chipotle sauce

Combine the onion mixture to the beans and stir well. Add 2 T. limeade, 1 tsp. apple cider vinegar and add more chipotle sauce if you want more heat. Let simmer 10 minutes.

Using dried beans and a pressure cooker…

I love my pressure cooker, especially when cooking dried beans.  All the time-consuming steps making beans is done by the pressure cooker while I’m doing something else.  I’m also a believer in cook once and eat twice.  With this recipe I can make a lot of beans to freeze in pint baggies to use later.  If you don’t have a pressure cooker but would still like to make a large batch of beans to freeze, you can substitute the 4 cups of dried beans with 10 cans of beans.

In a Pressure Cooker combine 10 c. water, 4 c. dried black beans, 1 T. olive oil, 1 T. dried sage and 1 T. dried oregano. Pressure cook on high for 20 minutes.  I like to do a fast release when done so the beans are a little firmer.  

While the beans are cooking sauté in a large pot 4 T. olive oil, 1 chopped onion and 1 chopped red pepper.

Then add 5 cloves crushed garlic, 1 tsp. chili powder, 1 T. cumin, ½ can chipotle sauce (7.76 oz. can) and 1-2 tsp. salt.

When the beans are finished cooking, place the beans and the liquid in the large pot with the onion/pepper mixture.

Add ½ c. limeade and 2 T. apple cider vinegar. Add more of the chipotle sauce at this time if you want more heat.

Let simmer for 20 minutes.
