Enjoy Cuban Black Beans as a change from tomato-based bean dishes. After the aroma invites you to try a bite, you’ll never want to settle for canned beans again. They are easy to make on the stove or in a slow cooker. See the notes below for using an Instant Pot or another pressure cooker too.
Cuban Black Beans cost just 57 cents a serving using organic ingredients.
This flexible recipe is one of our favorites, even after years as a go-to meal. Reader Amy B. wrote that her family “absolutely adores” Cuban Black Beans, including her children, aged four and two. She serves beans with steamed vegetables, avocado, and fresh tomatoes, saying:
We call them yum bowls.

Tried these and everyone loved them, especially my 17-year-old son who asked that I save some for his school lunch the next day. Took some to work and three co-workers insisted on the recipe; my best friend– a definite carnivore– loved them. Did manage to save some for soup tonight. I am happy that I have enough for lunch tomorrow. Great recipe.
