Black Beans Habanero
Go to the drugstore and get some surgical gloves to use when you're handling habaneros. You can get a big box of disposable gloves cheaply. I'm serious, now. Do it.
- Sauté leeks, garlic, squash and habanero in oil for 5 minutes. Add sherry and chicken broth, and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer, uncovered, about 30 minutes or until squash is tender.
- Add beans, thyme, cumin, black pepper and vinegar. Continue to simmer until beans are heated through.
- Stir in pine nuts and cook 1 minute longer.
