About this recipe: This simple black bean side dish works well with Mexican or Latin American meals. Black turtle beans have loads of fibre and are packed with nutrients.
If you can't find tinned black beans, use dried. You can also try tinned borlotti beans, or even kidney beans.
the chicken fajitas were amazingly full flavor, will be making this again - 19 Apr 2015
Easy and tasty! I always pour canned beans in a sieve or colander and rinse well under running water; this step does away with the "gas problem" a lot of people experience after eating beans. Works like a charm! I then use a can of beef or chicken broth to replace the liquid. Also, I fry the onions until soft and almost browned, add the garlic and saute for just 15 - 20 seconds more, then add the broth and simmer until ready to serve, at which time you would add the cilantro. This was a method that a Cuban neighbor taught me for an even tastier dish. - 04 Jun 2008 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
