Veggie Frijoles Negros

"I modified Carol Bullock's recipe for Frijoles Negros because we only had one can of black beans and I wanted to make up for it by adding a lot of healthy veggies. Turned out really well, I even blended some for my 8 month old who loved it! Use the frozen veggies that include a mix like corn, peas, small diced carrots, lima beans, etc. You want the veggies to be about the same small size."

I am a SAHM who loves to cook for my small family! I have a 14 month old daughter, a wonderful husband, a seven year-old Keeshond and a cat named Rex Manly. I really just love this website! I visit it practically every weekday for ideas and recipes and try to always post a review of everything I make from Zaar. The only time I don't is when I have a negative reaction to a recipe that was due to my mistake or if I have substituted so many ingredients that it wouldn't be a fair review. Thanks to all of you wonderful cooks who have made me a better cook myself!
