Warm the beans
Drain and rinse the beans. In a medium pan, heat a drizzle of oil on medium-high. Add the onions and cook, stirring frequently, 1 to 2 minutes, until beginning to soften. Add the beans, juice from up to ½ the lime wedges (to taste) and 2 tbsp water (double for 4 portions); season with ½ the remaining spice blend. Cook, stirring frequently, 3 to 5 minutes, until the beans are warmed through and beginning to soften. Add up to ½ the cilantro (to taste) and season with S&P; stir to combine.

Cook the pork
In the reserved pan, heat a drizzle of oil on medium-high. Pat the pork strips dry with a paper towel; season with the remaining spice blend and S&P. Add the pork strips* to the pan and cook, 1 to 2 minutes per side, until they’re cooked through and both sides are browned.
