How to cook boiled black beans

To cook boiled black beans is easy and tasty. I always pour canned beans in a sieve or colander and rinse well under running water, this step does away with the “gas problem” a lot of people experience after eating beans. Works like a charm. I then use a can of beef or chicken broth to replace the liquid. Also, I fry the onions until soft and almost browned, add the garlic and saute for just 15 – 20 seconds more, then add the broth and simmer until ready to serve, at which time you would add the cilantro. This was a method that a Cuban neighbor taught me for an even tastier dish.

Ingredients of boiled black beans:

  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1 (16 ounce) can black beans
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 1 clove garlic, chopped
