"You can cut your risk of heart attack by nearly 40% if you eat a three-ounce serving of black beans daily." Reader's Digest
That's enough motivation for me to eat black beans at least once a week! I have lots of black bean recipes, but the best I've ever tasted were at a Cuban restaurant inside the Miami airport.
None of my recipes tasted quite like those, so I kept tinkering until I created something close. These are great as a main dish over rice, or just as a side.
Enjoy this simple and nutritious recipe!
Easy Black Beans
4 14 ounce cans black beans
4 t garlic powder
2 onions, chopped
2 cups carrots, chopped
1 t cayenne pepper
2 t chili powder
2 1/2 t cumin
2 1/2 t coriander
1 t salt
1/2 t pepper
