Heat olive oil in a skillet over medium heat. Add beans, water, cumin, chili powder, smoked paprika, cayenne, and Mexican oregano. Season with salt and black pepper, to taste, and stir to combine.

Cook, stirring occasionally, until the beans are warmed through and the spices become fragrant, around 4-5 minutes. Remove from heat and set aside.

My most used item in the kitchen is my skillet! Having a good one that will last a long time is really important to me. I have found that the Le Creuset Skillet has been my go to skillet for most of my dishes, makes for an easier cleanup than a regular cast iron skillet too.


For a beautiful presentation use some serving bowls that have a pop of color to them compared to plane white ones. It will make your guests feel like they are dinning in an authentic Mexican restaurant.
