Easy Black Beans Recipe

Versatile Black Beans Make Great Meatless Monday Meal

Sometimes it's nice to prepare a big bowl of beans; then, you can use the beans over and over again to make different dishes throughout the week. Tonight I suggest you throw together a pot of these fragrant and flavorful black beans. The recipe calls for canned beans, so you don't have to worry about overnight-soaking or cooking for a long period of time. Serve the beans in a crispy taco shell, layered between two soft tortillas as quesadillas, or tossed with greens in a hearty salad. To get the fast and easy recipe, keep reading.

Between this and beer-baked beans, I'd say someone is on a bean kick!

These look so good. My favorite is a caribbean sort of black been dish that adds a bit of orange juice to the black beans. To die for yummy! (Pass the tortilla chips!!)

I like to make black bean burgers myself. I get two cans of black beans, some panko crumbs, seasoning such as chipotle, cumin, red pepper, onions, garlic,bell peppers(chopped) and 2 eggs. Blend together and form patties and bake in an oven. I too eat these with corn tortillas, mutligrain flat bread, seasoned rice (i.e. Spanish rice or Mexican rice) or whatever.
