Beer Boiled Beans

When I am at a loss as to what I should make for lunch for the week, I usually throw some beans in a pot and heat them up with spices. This week I managed to make some that I think were actually blog worthy- as long as you really like beans.

Beer Boiled Beans

Olive oil
1 can black beans, drained and rinsed
1 can garbanzo beans (chickpeas), drained and rinsed
1 can dark red kidney beans, drained and rinsed
1 small onion, diced
2-3 cloves garlic, minced
2-3 tomatoes, chopped
1 tsp liquid smoke
2 tablespoons smoked paprika
1/2-1 beer (I used Newcastle. I think a nice brown nutty beer will work best.)

Coat the bottom of a large pot with olive oil and add in the onion and garlic. Cook until golden.

Add the beans, beer, liquid smoke, and paprika. Boil until they are more chili consistency, and less soup like.

Add the tomatoes and remove from heat.

Some days I sprinkled a little grated cheese on top.

You could also add a pepper or some chili powder, if you like things hot.
