Preparation time: 5 minutes, Cooking time: 10 minutes, Serves: 0 


1/4 cup lard (you can also use vegetable oil)
1/4 cup onion, chopped
2 cloves fresh garlic, chopped
2 pickled jalapenos, seeded, diced and chopped
1/2 teaspoon cumin
16 oz. canned black beans
1 cup shredded jack cheese, queso blanco or white cheddar cheese


In a large skillet over medium heat add the lard, onions, garlic and jalapenos. Cook stirring often until the onions are soft and begin to turn transluscent.

Add the cumin and 1/2 cup of the beans. Using the back of a spoon, mash the beans. If the bean mixture is too thick add a tablespoon or more of water of liquid from the canned beans and stir.

Add the remaining beans and mash, adding extra liquid if necessary, until you get the desired consistency.

Add the grated cheese and stir until it melts and combines with the beans.

Let cool down and serve with your favorite Mexican dish.
