    3 tablespoons olive oil
    1 medium white onion, chopped
    2 cloves garlic, minced
    3/4 teaspoon coarse salt
    1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
    1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
    1/4 teaspoon dried oregano
    2 (15.5-ounce) cans black beans, drained and rinsed
    1/2 cup water
    3 cups cooked white rice
    1 avocado, chopped
    1 lime, cut into wedges


Heat 2 tablespoons oil in a large saute pan over medium-high heat. When oil shimmers, add garlic, salt, and half the onion. Cook, stirring occasionally, until onion is soft and translucent, about 3 minutes.

Stir in black pepper, cumin, and oregano and cook 1 minute more.

Add beans and water to pan and continue cooking, stirring occasionally, until beans are warmed through, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in remaining tablespoon oil.

Serve black beans over white rice and garnish with remaining onion, avocado, and lime wedges.
