Another yummy version of black beans! Perfect alongside Orange Cashew Rice.
The coconut milk adds a nice touch to the beans - I really need to cook with this more!

1/4 medium onion, finely chopped
1/2 medium bell pepper, finely chopped
1 clove garlic, minced
1/2 tsp. cumin
1/2 tsp. dried thyme

1/2 tsp. chopped jalapeno pepper
1 (15-ounce) can cooked black beans, rinsed and drained well
