Description

I’m in love.

Ingredients

  • 3 slices Bacon, Cut Into Small Chunks
  • ½ whole Red Onion, Diced
  • 3 cloves Garlic, Minced
  • 1 whole Red Bell Pepper, Diced
  • 1 Tablespoon Smoked Paprika
  • 1 teaspoon Cumin
  • 1 Tablespoon Tony Chachere's Creole Seasoning
  • 2 whole Roma Tomatoes, Diced
  • 2 cans (14.5 Oz. Size) Black Beans, Drained And Rinsed.
  • 1 Tablespoon Honey
  • ¼ cups Favorite Beer
  • ¼ cups Fresh Cilantro, Plus More For Garnish
  • 2 teaspoons Tabasco Sauce (or However Much You Prefer)
  • 3 cups Cooked Jasmine Rice

Preparation

Cook the bacon until crisp. Remove bacon and set aside to drain on paper towels. Discard all but 1 tablespoon of the bacon fat.

Add the diced onion to the skillet and cook until they start to soften and caramelize, 5 minutes. Add the garlic and bloom 30 seconds. Add the red bell pepper, paprika, cumin and a good pinch of the Tony’s spice. Saute another minute.

Add in the diced tomatoes and saute until they start to break down a little, 3 minutes. Then pour in the beans. Toss to combine and cook 2 minutes. Taste. Add the honey, beer and another pinch of Tony’s. Cook another 2 minutes.

Toss in the cilantro to wilt, along with a few glugs of Tabasco. Take one final taste. More Tony’s? It acts as salt so don’t overuse.

Serve black bean mixture on a heaping mound of cooked rice and garnish with more cilantro leaves and the reserved bacon bits. Have more Tabasco on hand. It’s only right.

Sounds great! What’s another option if you don’t keep beer around the house?

This might be my new favorite dish. I used brown rice and put it in my rice cooker while I worked out. I threw everything else together, as instructed, after my workout set. It was the PERFECT meal after a hard workout. Oh, and I substituted turkey bacon instead of regular bacon. Divine!
