Cuban Black Beans

Cuban Black Beans

Since my daughter stopped eating meat, I have been cooking more beans. I have tried all sort flavours of Japanese, Mediterranean, Indian, Middle Eastern, etc. But this is the biggest hit. Cuban!!!
Well…, I have never been to Cuba and never tasted real Cuban food. I just read some recipes and created my own version. This is the easiest possible way to cook yummy stewed Black Beans. And please note that pickled Jalapeños go very well with this dish.
