  • 2 teaspoons olive oil

  • 1/2 teaspoon ground coriander
  • 1/2 teaspoon chili powder
  • Salt to taste


  1. Place a small pot or skillet over medium-low heat. Add the olive oil followed by the minced garlic. Cook for 1 to 2 minutes, just to until the garlic begins to brown.

Tips & Tricks: If you are using home-cooked beans, be sure to store the cooked black beans in some of the cooking liquid! If you're using canned- you can cut extra salt out by draining and using broth or water in place of the liquid.
