Venezuelan Style Black Beans

Submitted by: CARTONCM

Introduction

My husband says he hates beans, but he actually requests these!
If this is used only as a side dish, they may go farther than 4 servings, but at our house they go fast because we eat them by the bowl- full.

  • These were delicious! I used red onion instead of yellow & vegetable broth instead of water since I had some leftover from other meals & I forgot the vinegar. This meal is definitely going under favorites and will be repeated.

  • I also am not a fan of beans, but this is great! I had to sub a few things (what I thought I had on hand and reality didn't match up!) So I used yellow pepper, chili powder (cumin), 1 can of Progresso black bean soup and only 1/2 cup of water, and red cooking wine instead of white wine vinegar. - 4/24/10
