1 tablespoon canola oil

1 small yellow onion, diced 

2 garlic cloves, minced 

1 teaspoon ground cumin 

1 teaspoon kosher salt 

1/2 teaspoon chipotle chile powder 

1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper 

One 4-ounce can diced green chiles 

Two 15-ounce cans black beans, rinsed and drained 

1 cup vegetable broth 

2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro 

1/4 cup Cotija cheese


  1. Heat the oil in a large saute pan over medium-high heat. Add the onion and cook until it begins to soften, about 3 minutes. Add the garlic, cumin, salt, chile powder and cayenne and cook until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Add the chiles, beans and broth and bring to a simmer. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the beans have softened and the sauce has thickened, 5 to 7 minutes. Transfer to a serving bowl and sprinkle with cilantro leaves and Cotija.
