My Favorite Vegetarian Dinner

This is my favorite black bean recipe. It is so good that I look forward to the leftovers all morning long the next day (and I am not a leftover eater). Start your rice before you begin the beans so you don't have to wait on it.

15 Minute Black Beans

1 medium onion, diced
1/2 red pepper, diced
1/2 green pepper, diced
1 can diced tomatoes (use 1 1/2 c. fresh tomatoes, diced in summer)
1 t. dried thyme
1 t. garlic salt
1 can black beans, save liquid
2-3 T. cider vinegar
1/2 - 1 t. hot sauce, to taste

Sauté onions in pan with 1 T. olive oil. When translucent, add peppers. Sauté until tender, add tomatoes, thyme, garlic salt, and beans (save liquid). Cook 3-5 minutes. Add bean liquid, vinegar, and hot sauce. Cook 5 minutes or more until desired consistency. Spoon over rice and top with a squirt of fresh squeezed lime juice, green onions, fresh tomatoes, cheese, and jalapenos.
