  • 2 slices bacon, chopped into 1 inch pieces
  • 1 can black beans, drained
  • 1 cup salsa
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 cup shredded monterrey jack cheese


  1. In a medium skillet over medium heat, cook bacon until crispy. Remove the bacon pieces to a paper towel lined plate.
  2. Add the beans to the bacon fat and use your potato masher to give the beans a squish. You don’t need to smash every single bean, but you just want to add some creaminess.
  3. Stir in the salsa and seasoning and bring to a simmer. Stir in the cheese until it’s melted, the sprinkle the bacon pieces over the top.
