My oldest son, who is now 6, has always loved black beans ever since he was a baby! He will not eat pinto or pork in beans. He just loves black beans. Whenever I make them he always asks for a big plate of them and nothing else. Then he goes back for seconds! These beans were no exception. They are very very easy and have a lot of flavor. You can spice these up by adding more cayenne pepper or if you need them family friendly try just a pinch of cayenne pepper to give them flavor!
Cuban Black Beans
2 (15 oz) cans of black beans
2 teaspoons chili powder
pinch of cayenne pepper
juice of 1 lime
1/2 cup chopped fresh cilantro
3 green onions, sliced optional
Over medium heat place the cans of beans, seasonings and lime juice. Heat all the way through then stir in the cilantro and green onions.
And here are the recipes for the coconut rice and the salmon with peach mango salsa that i paired with the cuban black beans.
