Beans are Neither Fruit nor Musical

For the next couple of days, I will be posting recipes that can be put together to create a wonderful meal. I'll start with these simple and delicious black beans. Keep checking in for the rest of the week for home made tortillas, tomatillo salsa, and Margarita chicken. By Friday night you will have delicious weekend menu. BLACK BEANS
16- to 19-ounce can black beans
2 garlic cloves
1 teaspoon ground cumin
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 can Rotel bramd tomatoes
1 small can diced chilis (mild)
3/4 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro

Rinse black beans and drain. Chop garlic. In a nonstick skillet cook garlic and cumin in oil over moderate heat, stirring, until fragrant. Add black beans, tomatoes, chilis, and salt and cook, stirring, until beans are heated through. Stir in cilantro. Top with Cotija cheese if you would like.
