Lime Cumin Black Beans

This can be a main meal over rice or a unique side dish. Canned beans may be used but are not as good as cooked dried beans in my opinion. A bit of hot pepper may be used to add some spice to the dish. Prep time does not include time to cook the beans.

Terrific beans! They have lots of fresh flavor from the garlic, lime and cilantro. I added a little bit of chopped red pepper, but that's all I did differently. They go great with rice and could be a main dish or side dish. Thanx for sharing!
