    Nancy's Pantry's Note:

    A delicious dish to be served with long-grain white rice or brown rice if you prefer. Soaking the beans overnight will reduce the cooking time. Another dish from my "James McNair's Favorites" cookbook.

    1. 1
      Pick over and rinse the beans; set aside.
    2. 2
      In a large, heavy pot, cook the bacon over medium-high heat until fat is rendered. Add the onion and cook, stirring frequently, until soft but not browned, about 5 minutes. Add the beans, garlic, cumin, bay leaves, brown sugar and enough water to cover by about 2 inches. Cook until the beans are tender. .
    3. 3
      Add the tomato puree and salt and pepper to taste and simmer until the flavors are well blended, about 20 minutes. Just before serving, stir in the cilantro and lime juice.

      Great beans! I love black beans, and these were spectacular. I let them cook longer than indicated, but I like mine really soft. Served with cilantro rice and amberjack with tarragon-lemon breadcrumbs. Great meal!! Thanks for sharing! Made for PRMR tag game.
