Who likes beans? Black beans? I love them! They healthy, inexpensive and delicious. I make all my beans in the crockpot overnight to make things easier on me. These beans can be eaten right over rice whether it be white rice or yellow rice.
Left overs can easily be refried to use in tacos or tostadas or whatever dish you like. They can also be refried or pureed and used as a dip.
Looking at this picture makes me hungry!
