Simple Black Beans
70 mins (prep 20, cooking 50)
8 ingredients

This recipe was published in the October 2007 issue of Cuisine at Home. I found a bag of black beans in the pantry and thought this sounded like a wonderful alternative to canned black beans. This recipe can be prepared, frozen in 1 cup size packages and then defrosted and used whenever a recipe calls for canned black beans. These are far superiour in texture and flavor to canned beans.
