Seasoned Black Beans

We love black beans. I cook more black beans than any other type of beans. I use them to make my homemade refried beans, but I also like to take plain cooked beans and season them to serve with other Mexican type meals.

Beans and rice are very inexpensive to serve, but lets face it, they can be very boring and tiring served on their own.

The good thing about beans and rice though is that you can easily add flavor to them. On their own they are plain and simple, but by adding just a few ingredients you can really change the flavor.

These seasoned black beans have become one of my favorite ways to serve beans. I like to serve them with my Cilantro Lime Rice.

    We love beans, especially black beans. This recipe reminds me of Cuban food in Miami.

  6. Black beans are my favorite! I always use them!!!!

    Someone linked up a Garbanzo salad recipe this week that would be awesome with black beans!

    Yummy, thank you!

  7. This recipe is delicious and quite inexpensive to make. My family loved it.

  8. This recipe calls for CANNED beans. I did not think that would be in your recipes.

    • I love cooked dried beans, but some days I just don’t have time or have any in the freezer already cooked. For those days and for really quick and easy recipes I keep canned beans on hand. I almost always have both on hand in my pantry.

  9. Black beans and rice is one of my favourite lazy night dinners, and last time I tried these beans and it made such a difference! They are still so quick and easy but the extra seasonings make it so delicious! Thanks for sharing!
