Black Beans

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by Mmmama

I found this recipe on a different site a few years ago and love how it makes plain black beans a little more special and a lot more tasty. It is so quick to make and is a great side for your Mexican dishes.

Great side dish - made to go with chili marinated steaks and brown rice. I substituted coriander for the fresh cilantro and served the beans with slices of avacado. I will be making these often - Thanks for the quick, tasty recipe.
