Southwestern Black Beans

2 teaspoons peanut oil
1 small jalapeno pepper with some seeds, minced
1 large clove garlic, minced
One 15-ounce can black beans, rinsed and strained
1/2 teaspoon finely chopped fresh oregano
Kosher salt
2 teaspoons to 1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
2 tablespoons roughly chopped fresh cilantro
Zest of 1/2 lime, optional


Heat the oil in a medium saucepan over medium-high heat. Add the jalapeno and garlic and cook, stirring, until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Add the beans, 1/3 cup water, oregano and 1/8 teaspoon salt and cook, stirring, until most of the liquid is evaporated, about 3 minutes. Remove from the heat, stir in the lime juice and adjust seasoning. Transfer to a serving bowl, sprinkle with the cilantro and lime zest if using and serve.
