- 4 cloves of minced garlic
- 1 (15 ounce) can black beans (undrained)
- 3/4 cup water

- 2 Sauté until tender-10 minutes.
- 3 Add in remaining ingredients and stir until boiling, reduce heat and simmer until sauce is reduced and thickens. About 20 minutes.
- 4 Serve over white rice.
- 5 I like to mash a few of the beans with the back of a spoon to flavor the sauce.
- 6 Note: if you do not have Sazòn Goya, an appropriate substitute would be ground cumin, chicken bouillon, and garlic salt to taste.
