How to Make Sassy N' Smoky Mexican Style Black Beans
- Place beans and reserved cooking liquid, espresso, ketchup, salsa and garlic in a heavy saucepan over medium high heat. Bring to simmer, reduce to low, and cook for 25-30 minutes, or until the sauce has reduced and the beans are tender.
Note: The finished beans should be a little "soupy" .
- While beans are simmering, slice the sausage into 1/4 inch thick pieces, and brown
in a skillet over medium high heat. Add the sausage to the beans and continue to cook
for about 10 minutes longer.
- Season with salt and optional hot sauce to taste.
Garnish with queso fresco, lime slices and cilantro, and serve!
