  • In a saucepan over medium heat add water or broth.
  • Add onion powder, garlic powder, cumin, coriander, salt and pepper and stir to combine.
  • Add beans and stir well.
  • Bring mixture to a boil.
  • After mixture boils reduce heat to low and continue cooking for 5-7 minutes.
  • During cooking, use a potato masher or fork to “mash” the beans.
  • The more beans you “mash” the less chunky your mixture will be.
  • Continue cooking and mashing until you have reached your desired thickness and consistency.
  • Add chopped fresh cilantro and lime juice and stir to combine.
  • Let the mixture rest for 5 minutes covered (if you leave it uncovered the beans will continue to thicken).
  • Serve warm with tacos!
