Market Sandwich

I guess this is from Self magazine, but I found it on It's super-easy and super-quick and is very yummy.

Despite the ease of it, I did change some stuff and screw up some stuff.

Change: I didn't boil the vinegar, I just put the onion in a bowl and tossed some red wine vinegar (not white) on them, turning every 10 minutes or so. I like how onions taste when they have marinated in red wine vinegar better than plain white.

Screw up: I mixed the chipotle chile in with the black beans and cumin. This turned out to be a really good choice though because it ensured that the chipotle flavor was even throughout the sandwich.

We both really liked this and would definitely make it again.
