In fact, the little bit of love that I added to these beans made them so good that I started eating them out of the pot like it was some sort of soup. In reality, I made the beans as a quick side dish to my Chicken Enchiladas but I would have been just as satisfied with a ladle full of them poured over a pile of steaming rice. They're THAT good... and they only take about 5 minutes to prepare. No lies.
If you prefer to cook dry beans rather than using canned, just add these seasonings to the pot as you boil the beans.

Dice the jalapeno and mince the garlic. Throw them in a pot with the cumin and some olive oil and saute over medium heat.
After about five minutes everything should be cooked down a bit, the cumin will have toasted slightly and developed a nice smokey flavor. Add the can of beans (do not drain) and heat through.
