    Engrossed's Note:

    This is my Mother's favorite black bean recipe. I think she got it from an old Cuban cookbook. Her note is: "flavorful!" Cooking time doesn't include soaking time.

      I have tried several Cuban Black Bean recipes and this was by far the best! It got rave reviews at home and an empty bowl at a potluck. I like to rate recipes for themselves without changes, but just as an FYI, I did use a red bell pepper and half the oil, and they were still incredible!

      Delicious. I've never had Cuban Black Beans, but these were great. I added chopped carrots, and skipped the wine. The vinegar was great - I tried it before and after - definitely better after. It rounds out the flavor with slightly sweet notes, and brings out the other flavors. I added salt until it tasted right, but it was definitely less than 4 Tbs. (maybe 1-2 tsp). Wonderful served as a vegetarian meal, with some rice. Also very good wrapped in a tortilla.

      I've made these multiple times, once with no changes, and the other times, I reduce the olive oil to 1/4 cup and reduce salt to 2 teaspoons, for lower fat and sodium. It tastes just as good with these adjustments. Thanks for sharing this recipe!!
