Black beans are a staple of the Brazilian diet.

Healthy and satisfying as well as healthy. (I'd be willing to bet that the current nutritional info is incorrect. 97% of the calories are from fat?) As written, the recipe is almost too mild in flavor, I think. I increased the cumin and oregano becuase the amounts listed were barely detectable. I also added chopped red onion right into the stew as well as using for garnish. I also garnished with cilantro and would add it right into the stew next time. Thanx for sharing!
