  • 1 1/2 Tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 c. chopped red onion
  • 1 Tbsp. chopped garlic
  • 1 x inch jalepeno chile, seeded and chopped
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp. chopped fresh ginger
  • 1 1/2 tsp cumin seeds
  • 1 1/2 tsp salt About 6 c. cooked black beans (3 15-oz cans, rinsed and liquid removed)
  • 6 Tbsp. fresh lime juice
  • 2 lrg ripe mangoes, chopped Freshly grnd black pepper to taste Chopped fresh cilantro (optional) Squeezable wedges of lime


  1. Heat the oil in a medium-sized skillet. Add in 1 1/4 c. of the onion and the garlic, chile, ginger, cumin seeds, and salt. Saute/fry over medium-high heat for about 3 min.
  2. Turn the heat down to medium-low and add in the black beans and about half the lime juice. Saute/fry for about 5 more min, or possibly till everything has mingled nicely and the beans are heated through. Mash the beans slightly with the back of the spoon and transfer to a bowl.
  3. Stir the remaining lime juice and about half of the minced mangoes directly into the warm beans, mashing the mangoes a little as you stir. Grind in some black pepper, then cover and let stand for about 15 min to let the sauce develop.
  4. Serve hot, at room temperature, or possibly even cool, topped with the remaining red onion and mango and some chopped cilantro, if you like. For a finishing touch, tuck a juicy wedge of lime into the side of each serving.
  5. Yield: About 6 servings, depending on what else is served
