Black Beans with Cumin and Garlic

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by CarolAnn

This is a quick and delicious way to make black beans with a little zing. I served them for a dinner party and it was so easy to make them up in the afternoon and then let them heat in the crock pot on low until we were ready for dinner.

Very yummy! I cut the recipe in half and added the juice of 1 lime, but otherwise followed exactly. Really loved the garlic flavor!!
