Black beans

This one's easy.  And tasty.  You can modulate spice if need be, and they're slightly (but only slightly) on the unusual side for just standard black beans.

  • One half white/yellow onion.  Pretty small bits.
  • Four or five cloves of garlic
Sweat in olive oil.  Add:
  • About 1/3 of a 7oz can of chipotle peppers in adobe sauce, rough chopped, with some of the sauce itself.  This stuff is potent, as it turns out.  Save the rest for another day.
When that's all nicely combined, add:
  • Two cans of black beans, one of them without liquid
  • One can chicken broth
Bring all that to a boil and reduce it down until the liquid is just covering the beans.  Cover, reduce heat, add some salt.  You can hold that warm as long as you need and beans will just get softer and mushier, which can be desirable.
