“Fresh herbs gives a hot Spanish flair to this black bean dish. It's a favorite from my Argentine boyfriend. This is traditionally served over rice.”

  1. Heat the olive oil in a large pot over medium-high heat; cook the onions and garlic in the oil until the onions are translucent, 5 to 7 minutes. Stir in the black beans, tomato sauce, diced tomatoes, cumin, and cayenne pepper; reduce heat to medium-low and simmer 5 minutes. Add 3/4 cup cilantro and simmer another 2 minutes. Stir in the green onions and remove from heat. Garnish with 1/4 cup cilantro.

Mindful of hubs' sensitive innards, I left out the cayenne but this sure wasn't short on flavor! I added salt, used less cilantro (we're just beginning to like this stuff and didn't want to push it!) and more fresh, red-ripe tomatoes and simmered it a little longer than directed to really meld and bring out the flavors in that wonderful sauce. Just delicious!

This was a great dish, but I wish I had let it simmer longer. If I made it again, I might even let it sit in the crock pot for a few hours on low. It was great over rice, spicy but the perfect amount. I also used it as a filling in burritoes with cheese.

This was a great flavorful recipe. I took the other reviews advice and let it simmer longer. I served it over rice the first night, and used the rice/leftovers + cheese for vegetarian burritos the second night. When I make this again I will use two cans of black beans.
