Heat pork fat (bacon grease) in a saute pan. Once it comes to temp add the onion and saute for about 5 minutes.
As the onion starts to become soft and translucent, add the garlic and pepper (very finely diced & seeds removed). Saute for another 3 minutes.
Add the cumin, cilantro, salt, pepper, tobasco, and black beans. Either add 1/4 cup of chicken broth or swirl 1/4 cup of water in the black bean can to get out the leftover "goodies" and add to the pan. Bring to a boil and simmer until thickened.
Serve the beans over a timbale of rice and garnish with bacon, cilantro, sour cream, or whatever sounds good.
Using bacon grease or pork fat makes up for using canned black beans instead of simmering dried beans with ham hocks.
For a neat presentation, create a reverse timbale, making bowl out of rice.
