Black Beans

Pin It
My fiance's mom is Cuban, and she makes the best pork, rice and beans, and other traditional Cuban food. Since this is mainly what Chris grew up on, I enjoy trying new Cuban recipes and getting his input. Although what I make is not as good as his mom's cooking, it's fun switching up the menu and trying new things.

Take these black beans for example. I thought they were amazing. The pinch of cayenne pepper gave them a little heat, and the lime juice and onions really gave them a refreshing and delicious flavor. We also topped it off with a dollop of sour cream (I never would have thought of this, but it's what Chris' family does and it's amazing). Give these a try next time you're looking for a fun side dish. I promise you'll love them!
