There might be a thread on this already, but I haven't seen it if so.
Let's get a thread going of tasty, yet inexpensive recipes. They don't have to be too fancy, just something that tastes great and won't break the bank.
I'll go first:
Better Than The Mexican Place Down The Street's Black Beans
2 cloves of garlic chopped
1/4 - 1/2 onion, chopped
2 cans of black beans, partially drained (I like Hunt's)
tablespoon of cumin
salt to taste
Splash of beer (Had the best luck with BMC :ducks: )
Sautee the garlic and onion in olive for a few minutes until they start to soften. Add the beans and a splash of beer. When they come to a simmer, add salt and cumin. Whiz it all up with an immersion blender or mash it up with a fork/potato masher/etc...
Add some tortilla chips, grilled vegetables if you're feeling fancy, chorizo, whatever. My wife and I have eaten some form of this 3 out of the past 5 days. Freaking awesome.
