Black Beans

I no longer can just serve black beans straight from a can. Not when I now know how good they can be.  These can be made as a side.  Or serve them over rice as a meal.  The recipe come from a former co-worker, Amanda. 

Quick and easy black beans
¼-½ cup olive oil
2 clove garlic
Sm. Red onion
1 med. Green bell pepper or ½ green, ½ red
Cook together in saucepan until cooked
Add 3 cans black beans w/ liquid
1 cup water to thin
1 tsp. ground cumin
Few dashes of Tabasco sauce
1 Tbsp red wine vinegar
1 Tbsp sugar
3 bay leaves
3 whole cloves
Cook 1-2 hours or longer beans just get softer. Then serve with rice.
