Citrus Black Beans

This is a terrific side dish. It is so easy and tastes great! We had it tonight with leftover Mexican Lasagna. The flavor combination of orange juice and smoky cumin pairs perfectly with the earthy beans and tomatoes and green chiles. You could also serve the beans with rice for a meal-in-one; just add a salad.

Citrus Black Beans
1 onion, chopped
1 garlic clove, minced
2 tsp. olive oil
2 cans black beans, drained
3/4 cup orange juice
1 can tomatoes and green chiles with lime and cilantro
1 tsp. cumin
1/2 tsp. salt

1. Sauté onion and garlic in hot oil until onion is tender. Stir in black beans and next 4 ingredients. Cook, stirring occasionally, until bean mixture thickens slightly.
