1. In a skillet, heat olive oil over medium heat.
2. Add onion and cook 5-8 minutes or until very soft and translucent. Stir in garlic and spices and cook for 1 minute.
3. Stir in beans and 1/2 cup water and bring mixture to a simmer. Smash half of the beans using the back  of wooden spoon or potato masher. Continue to simmer until mixture is thickened and most of the liquid has evaporated, about 3 minutes. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
