Loved these! I love the black beans you get in restaurants and these tasted just like it. I skipped the chilis because I didn't have any and I halved the recipe because it's just the two of us. We will make these again!

Tasty beans! The seasonings in these beans were perfect. I did also add some sugar, salt, and pepper. I needed these thicker because I was using them as a burrito filling along with shredded chicken and yellow rice, so I did end up draining some liquid and I made myself a note to drain off most of the bean liquid before adding them to the pot next time. Thank you for a great recipe!

LOVE this. I make this A LOT. This is my weekly, quick, go to meal (and I love that it's so cheap!). I always sautee decided green bell pepper with the onion.Sometimes I add turkey kielbasa to it or some grilled chicken, but usually I just make it as is, and serve it on a bed of brown rice. I top it off with some shredded cheese, crumbled tortilla chips, and a little light sour cream. Mmmmmm....

These were the best black beans we had ever tasted! We made them exactly as written, except we used a little less jalapeno and did remove the seeds (there was still a perfect amount of heat for us). We served them with Mexican rice, pico de gallo, avocado and sauteed veggies, and they were the hit of the table. The spice proportions are perfect, and lime juice and cilantro are an excellent addition. Highly recommended!

This was great! I rinsed off my beans to get rid of some sodium and just added some water when I added the beans to the skillet. I left my jalepenos and onions a little larger. The cilantro along with the cumin gave a nice balance. I may be biased because I am addicted to cilantro. I ate this with some naan (Indian flat bread) that I get from the local Indian store.

Yummy!! Had to change the heat of it though because I have little guys. I put in diced green chilis instead of the jalepeno. Everyone loved it even my 2 and 3 year olds!! Thanks so much for the great and easy recipe!!

MMMM these are good beans! I was looking for something like the beans you get on the side at Chili's and these fit the bill. These are easy to make and so very cheap! Had the leftovers in a burrito for lunch the next day. Thanks for posting - will make these a lot.

Excellent flavor; just the right amount of heat. This makes a great side, or even a main dish over rice or some other grain. I made this just as written. Don't skip the fresh cilantro and fresh lime juice. They really pump up the flavor. Thanx for posting!

Excellent recipe! Used it as a sub for Bushs seasoned black beans and it was amazing. Changes I made were: onion powder instead of fresh onion(for a smooth consisitency), juice from one lemon AND one lime, a dash of salt. Perfect for Roasted Garlic Veggie Tostadas!
