Quick Cuban black beans

October 27, 2014

I love Cuban black beans, but preparing them from scratch is time-consuming. Here’s a recipe that gives you perfectly acceptable results in 15 minutes.

2-15 oz cans of seasoned black beans
1/4 c diced onion
1/4 c diced green bell pepper
1 clove garlic, minced
2 tsp olive oil
1 tsp ground cumin
1/2 tsp black pepper

In a saucepan, sauté the onion, pepper, and garlic in  the oil until soft, about 5 minutes. Stir in the cumin and pepper and, a minute later, the beans (with their liquid). Cover and simmer for 5-10 minutes. Serve over white rice.
