Hearty, spicy, bursting with a flavour bomb of beans, topped on hearty kale, and then drizzled with a little Chipotle Lime Dressing this is my new favourite salad. It’s like a fiesta in your mouth.

For the black beans:
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/2 an onion , chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic , minced
  • 1 19 oz can black beans (about 2 cups), drained and rinsed
  • 1 chipotle pepper in adobo sauce , minced
  • 2 tablespoons tomato paste
  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 1 teaspoon agave
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
For the salad:
  1. To prepare the beans, heat the olive oil in a large frying pan or skillet over medium-high heat. Sauté the onions and garlic for about 5 minutes until the soften and begin to brown. Add in the black beans and all of the remaining ingredients. Stir well to combine and cook until heated through. Another 3-5 minutes.
  2. To assemble the salad, put the shredded kale in a large bowl and top with the prepared black beans. Drizzle on the dressing to taste. The black beans are very flavourful, so you might not need too much. Bon Appetegan!
