First, chop up half an onion, several cloves of garlic and a bell pepper (colour doesn't matter). Saute those together over medium heat in a little bit of olive oil until the onions are translucent.
Drain and rinse a can of black beans. Add the beans to the onions and mix for just a couple of minutes.
Add some spices: about a teaspoon each of cumin and chili powder, some salt and pepper, and a pinch of cayenne pepper for heat (if you want). Mix well, then add about 1/2 cup of salsa (you choose the heat). Mix together and cook until heated through.
You could serve this in wraps with lettuce, cheese and sour cream, or as a side dish with rice and a salad or yam fries.
