Orange Chipotle Black Beans

Orange Chipotle Black Beans

3 cans black beans, drained, reserving 1 c. liquid
1 orange
2 tablespoons chopped chipotle peppers
2 teaspoons salt
2 tablespoons vegetable oil or butter
1 large onion, finely chopped
1 tablespoon fresh minced garlic

Heat the vegetable oil in a very large skillet or pot. Add the onion and garlic and saute until they are both tender and fragrant. Add the beans and their liquid. Grate the rind of the orange into the beans, cut the orange in half and squeeze the juice into the beans too. Add the chipotle pepper and salt. Bring to a boil. Simmer for at least 15 minutes so the flavors blend. Serve over rice
