- 1/2 cup bitter orange juice or its substitute
- 1/2 cup chopped cilantro
- Preheat oven to broil. In a small roasting dish, toss to combine tomatoes, 2 tablespoons olive oil and a pinch of salt. Broil until tomatoes are charred and softened but still hold their shape, about 10 minutes. Transfer tomatoes to a large bowl and fold in beans, onions and chiles.
