{"CAFE RIO" BLACK BEANS}

These are really good in taco salad! Squeeze a little lime on top, and voila! (Marian found the original recipe here.)

I'm posting pressure cooker instructions. If you don't have a pressure cooker, just adjust the liquid amount and cook the beans as you normally would.

1 lb dry black beans, rinsed and sorted
1 c. tomato sauce/juice/whatever
3 1/2 c. water
1/2 large sweet onion (or 1 regular onion), chopped
2 garlic cloves, minced
1/2 T. salt
1 to 2 T. cumin (depending on desired spiciness)

• Put all ingredients in a pressure cooker.
• Cook on high pressure, 50 minutes, natural release.
