More often than not I prepare black beans vegetarian. However I wanted to compare them to a recipe from "South American Cooking: A Step-by-Step Guide to Authentic Dishes Made Easy" (2010). Having made only minor recipe changes, I found the outcome quite tasty. But the earthy flavor of home cooked black beans are always good ~ bacon or no bacon. You might want to try this version of the popular Brazilian food known as feijoada. (Leftovers freeze very well.)
