"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 li..." See moreke 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."
"I just tried this recipe with fantastic results! I made a few modifications and additions, however. I used fresh black beans I prepared in the morning and replaced cayenne with a dash of chili powde..." See morer. Then I allowed everything to simmer for about 15 minutes for the flavors to infuse and blossom. :P At about 15 mins, I added my secret ingredient: the juice of a lime and proceeded to simmer for about 5-10 mins more. The lime juice tied everything together nicely! Very tasty!"

The only variation I made to..." See more the recipe was adding some fresh ground black pepper along with the salt.

I then topped it off with some green onions and sour cream. Mmmm. Perfect for vegetarians, too."
