Mashed Black Beans

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by Mrs Goodall

Got this easy recipe from Cuisine at Home June '03. Tastes fabulous and takes only 15 minutes! Very easy to halve or double to.

Really liked that this was so quick and easy, also liked how easily I could cut it in half for just the two of us. DH loved that these were not spicy hot but more like what his mother used to make. Thanks for the post.
