This is a traditional Venezuelan dish and one of my childhood comfort foods. It’s also  vegan and super easy to make!

  • 2 jalapeno peppers, diced (you can substitute serrano peppers or  1/2 green bell pepper if you want less heat)
  • 1 roma tomato, seeded and diced
  • 1 can black beans, drained
  • 1 shallot, diced
  • 2 tbs lime juice
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1 tsp vegetable oil
  • In a small pot, sautee jalapeno and diced shallot until shallot is tender and translucent.
  1. Keep heat high, and add black beans and diced tomatoes
  2. Add lime juice and spices, and stir
  3. Simmer, stirring occasionally, for 5-6 minutes or until tomatoes are tender
  4. Serve with corn chips, cornbread, fresh corn tortillas, or over rice.
