"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." — kimmers

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 okay. It was a lot thicker than I expected. I guess that's how people are able to make it into burritos the next day. I will try that tomorrow. I only put one onion, and it was a lot!
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.
I made these for dinner and it was delish! I made one slight alteration, I added 3/4 cup of coconut milk which acts as an anti-flatulence, especially with gas causing beans. Will be making this again.
This was SO GOOD and super easy. It was just spicy enough. I followed other reviews and let it simmer a while longer. My husband used the leftovers for burritos the next day. We will make this again for sure.
Great recipe. Just the right amount of spice and easy to make. I used a pound of dried beans instead of canned. Just put them in the slow cooker with about 5 cups of water for a few hours before adding the rest of the ingredients. It takes about 8 hours this way. Left out the cilantro because my hubby won't allow it, but I think it would be a wonderful addition if you don't have picky eaters in the house. Added a splash of vinegar toward the end to fix the lack of umph. Otherwise, I wouldn't change a thing about this recipe!
Picked up another can of black beans just so i can make this again. It was very good. Great side dish for any mexican/latin meal.Followed recipe exactly.
