Serves: 6
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 cup chopped onions
  • 2 teaspoons minced garlic
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • ½ teaspoon cumin
  • ½ teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 teaspoon table salt
  • 1½ cups chopped boxed tomatoes
  • 1 (15-ounce) can black beans, drained
  • ½ cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • ½ cup sour cream

  1. In a large skillet, heat the olive oil over medium-low heat. Add the onions, garlic, chili powder, cumin, oregano, and salt. Sauté, stirring, for 5 minutes or until tender. Add the tomatoes and ½ cup water to the pan. Bring to a boil, stirring, to get all of the spices from the bottom of the pan.
