Beetles in Grass

2-3 lbs. leeks - cut in slices and made into rings (figure that one out!)
1 clove garlic
3 Tbs. olive oil
1/4 cup water
1/4 - 1/2 cup cooked drained black beans
1/2 bottle of World Harbors "Island Mango" sauce/marinade
cooked rice
Northwoods Fire seasoning or some other hot seasoning. (optional)

In a 10" frying pan, saute garlic slices in oil, then discard. Add sliced leek rings (green and white part) to the oil. Saute, stirring till half cooked. Add water. Cover and finish cooking, then remove lid and evaporate most of the liquid. Looks like circular grass, right? Add bottled mango sauce, beetles (black beans), and seasoning. Warm. Serve on bed of rice.
