Black beans can be easily made using canned black beans resulting in a quick and great tasting side.

1/4 cup bell peppers, minced
1 chipotle pepper, minced

Sofrito is a condiment that is made by cooking bell peppers, onions, tomatoes, and other spices together in a pot until it is very soft and well broken down. Each Latin cook has their own version of sofrito, I suggest cooking a big batch, then freezing it in small 1 cup portions for later use.
