swiss chard with black beans and feta

This is from La Chamba – Pauline Picchi. I haven’t made it yet, just spotted it and thought I’d like to try it…

1 ½ tblsp. vegetable oil
1 ½ tblsp. butter
2 cloves of garlic minced
1 pinch of aleppo chili flakes
1 bunch Swiss Chard-rinsed, stems removed and cut into 1l2 inch slices
1 can of black beans, 16oz.
1 small tomato, chopped
salt and pepper to taste
1 tblsp. fresh lime juice
3 tblsp. of feta cheese

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Lightly grease an 8 or 9 inch Chamba baking dish. Heat the oil and butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Add garlic and aleppo chili flakes; cook and stir until fragrant, about 1 minute. Add Swiss chard, cover and cook for 4 minutes. Uncover and mix in the black beans, tomato, lime juice, salt and pepper. Cover and continue cooking until the chard is wilted, about 4 more minutes.
Transfer the chard to the baking dish and dot with feta cheese, pushing it down into the dish. Bake for 15 minutes in the preheated oven, or until the feta cheese is warmed.
