  • ¼ Large Onion, diced into ¼” pieces
  • ½ Tsp. Cumin Seeds
  • 1 Garlic Clove, finely minced

  • 1/3 Cup Water or Broth
  • 2 Pinches Dried Oregano Leaves

  • In a medium sauce pan over medium heat, sauté the bacon until the bacon has rendered most of the fat.
  • Add the onion and sauté until it is transparent.
  • Drain most of the fat; stir in the cumin seeds and garlic and sauté, stirring for about 30 seconds or until fragrant.
  • Add the remaining ingredients and stir to incorporate.
