Ingredients

    Extra-lean ground beef.
    Black beans
    Fresh onion
    Fresh garlic
    1 cup of Classico Spaghetti Sauce

Directions

Cook the beans:

Soak the beans in twice their volume of water for 24 hours inside the fridge.
Discard the water were the beans were soaked.
This procedure helps to reduce the minerals that cause bloating and gas.

In a slow cooker or in a pot, cook the beans in low heat for as long as necessary to make them tender. In my slow cooker, it usually takes six hours.

Mash the beans. If you think your stomach can take it, leaving the skins of the beans is tasty and ads fiber to your diet but can cause gases to some people.

If you prefer, mash the beans through a strainer and remove some of the skins, but do not remove all of them to keep some fiber and not just the starch from the beans.

Cook the meat:
Warm up a non-stick pan, and cook the meat in its own juice until is thoroughly cooked. Add garlic and onion to taste. I don't add salt as the spaghetti sauce already contains salt.

Combine beans, meat, and spaghetti sauce.

Serve spread in a bun or on tortillas, as a dip, or topped with melted cheese.
