This quick and easy bean recipe can eaten as a side dish, or can be turned into a quick dinner by wrapping the beans in a tortilla and serving as a bean burrito. Add a dollop of sour cream or grated Monterey jack or cheddar cheese on top or in the burrito for extra flavor. Use canned black beans to save time.

2 garlic cloves, finely chopped
1 tbsp ground cumin
1 cup salsa
In a medium saucepan, heat the oil. Add the onion, bell pepper, garlic, and cumin, and sauté until the onion is tender, 3-5 minutes. Add the black beans and salsa, and cook until the black beans are hot. Season with salt before serving.
