Authentic black beans made from scratch and WAY better than anything that comes out of a can! Not that there is anything wrong with beans that way! Just that these are as different as night and day when compared to canned. You could probably save time and use canned beans in place of the dried. Just be sure to rinse very very well. I am finally getting some of my 'secret' (lol) recipes on Zaar. Since I tend to measure in my hand or just add a 'pinch' of this or 'enough' of that it is difficult to post the ones that I make here day in and day out. This is a recipe that I can make probably with my eyes closed! Dark beer is too strongly flavored and Light Beer not strong enough for this so use a regular beer. Dos Equis (XX) or even Budweiser beer works well here. You could also used dried herbs and spices but your mouth will be rewarded if you use fresh. I learned how to cook lots of different authentic Mexican dishes from several different friends over the years. The biggest and best thing I think I learned was do not rub your eyes after handling chilies! lol Wear gloves if you like! Learned that one FAST! I also learned how to make salsa's- NOT what we think of as salsa but rather a sauce or seasoning paste that is used to then season various dishes. Making a blended seasoning paste to add to the beans is a great way to punch up the flavor. After compiling all that knowledge with my 'gueralita' background this is what I came up with. Hope you enjoy too! Oh and plan ahead! The dried beans need to soak!
