Whats for dinner?

If you are wondering what your going to make for dinner tonight you should make these black bean tacos. They are super easy and super tasty.

Quick Black Beans with Cumin and Oregano
Olive oil
1 medium yellow onion, diced
1 tsp. ground cumin
½ tsp. dried oregano
½ tsp. Mexican-style hot sauce, or more to taste (this amount makes mild beans)
some cloves of garlic, pressed
1 (15-ounce) can black beans (I used Bush's)
¼ tsp. salt, or to taste

Pour a glug of olive oil into a medium saucepan, and warm it over medium heat. Add the onion, increase the heat to medium-high, and cook, stirring occasionally, until the onion is translucent and pale golden. It should be just starting to caramelize; it might scorch a bit in areas too, and that’s just fine. Add the ground cumin and oregano, and stir well. Add the hot sauce, and stir well again. Add the garlic, followed by the beans and their can juices. Reduce the heat to medium-low, and cook until the beans are soft and warmed through. Taste, and salt as needed.
Top with you choice of toppings.

I leave you with my big belly. If you try the recipe out let me know what you thought.
