Ingredients

  • 1  teaspoon  extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1/2  cup  minced onion
  • 1/2  teaspoon  kosher salt, plus more to taste
  • 1  teaspoon  canned chipotle peppers in adobo sauce, minced
  • 1  teaspoon  cumin
  • Two 15-ounce cans black beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1/2  cup  orange juice
  • 1/4  cup  water
  • 2  tablespoons  minced cilantro
  • 1  teaspoon  lime juice
  • Black pepper, to taste

Directions

Heat the oil in a medium-sized nonstick saucepan over medium-low heat. Add the onion and salt and reduce heat to low and cook, stirring frequently, until the onion is softened, about 7-8 minutes.

Add the chipotle peppers, cumin, beans, orange juice, and water. Mash the beans slightly with a potato masher. Increase heat to medium and simmer until the mixture has thickened slightly, about 10-15 minutes. Just before serving, stir in the cilantro and lime juice; season to taste with salt and pepper.
