Mashed Black Beans with Chipotle Crema
Servings: 8 | Time: 18 minutes
Black beans are traditionally served separately from rice; here they become a hearty side dish topped with spicy-smooth chipotle crema.
- In large skillet add oil and butter; heat on medium high heat. Add onions and garlic; cook 1 to 2 minutes. Add chicken stock; return to simmer.
- In another bowl add black beans; lightly mash them. Add beans to onion mixture; simmer 3 to 4 minutes. Sprinkle with cotija cheese. Serve with Chipotle Crema and lime wedges.
- Tip: * For Chipotle Crema
In a small bowl, whisk together 1/4 cup sour cream, 1 tablespoon water, and 1 teaspoon adobo sauce from a can of chipotles in adobo sauce.
- Make Ahead Tip:
Store beans and Chipotle Crema separately in airtight containers up to 3 days. Reheat beans in a skillet on medium heat with an additional 2 tablespoons chicken stock. Cook 5 minutes or until heated through. Serve as directed.
