My Favorite Black Beans

1 regular bag of dried black beans - about 2 cups
1 sweet onion, chopped
4-6 cloves of garlic, minced
3-4 T cumin
olive oil

Soak beans overnight. Dump water and rinse beans. Meanwhile heat some olive oil in the bean pot and sautee onions and garlic till tender. Dump in the beans, and 6 c water. Bring to a boil, then turn down and let simmer 1 hr. Dump in the cumin, stir, and let simmer another hour.

These are great as a side dish, as a chip dip, mixed with rice and veggies for a grain salad, mushed inside of cheese quesadillas. I never run out of ways to enjoy them!
