  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • ½ large white or yellow onion , diced
  • 2 (15-ounce) cans black beans, drained and rinsed
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper , to taste
  • 3 ounces queso fresco or Monterey jack cheese , crumbled (optional, for garnish)
  • Corn chips for serving (optional)
  • ¾ cup water (plus more if needed)


  • Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium high heat. Add the chili powder, cumin, and onion. Cook until the onion is tender, about 5 minutes. Add the beans plus ¾ cup water. Smash the beans with the back of a spoon or a potato masher. Cook until the beans are heated through. If they are too thick, add a little more water. If too thin, cook a little longer. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Serve topped with the crumbled cheese, if using.
