    1 medium onion - diced
    2 cloves garlic - minced
    1 teaspoon cayenne
    1/2 teaspoon cumin
    1/2 teaspoon oregano

Add ground chile, cumin and oregano and cook, stirring, until fragrant, about 30 seconds more. Add beans, 1 cup of water and tomato paste; stir to combine. Bring to a simmer, reduce heat to medium-low and cook, stirring occasionally, until the beans are heated through and the sauce is slightly thickened, 8 to 10 minutes. Serve warm.
