  • Cooking Tip from La Cocina GOYA
  • Freeze beans for better leftovers: Leftovers? No problem! Cooked bean dishes, like this one, are great candidates for freezing. The hearty legumes tend to retain their taste, texture and color for up to 3 months in the freezer. Just place the cooled beans in an air-tight container, freeze, and you'll have a delicious homemade side on call!

I enjoy the Goya products.. For an easy recipe.. look on the label of Goya Black Beans. I use some green pepper, onion - sauteed in olive oil till tender, 1 can black beans, 1 package of Goya Sazon seasoning and a touch of Goya Adobe seasoning. Simple and Awesome..

My favorite recipe! We eat this all the time. I would omit the sazon because of the MSG but other than that fantastic!

We really liked this dish. I paired it with grilled chicken rather than making it a main dish alone. The beans were very very flavorful, but I couldn't help myself...I did drain and rinse the beans. The liquid they're in just seems too gooey to me. I used buttered jasmine rice with the beans, and it was a meal we'll definitely repeat. Also I had to leave out the recaito because my husband and I both have those weird taste buds that make cilantro taste like soap. Nevertheless, the beans were still perfect for us. Thanks, Goya!

Nothing out of this world or rocking my socks off, but it was good paired with the (amazing) Goya fajita recipe. I am pretty sure this is a personal preference; usually my beans are mashed and refried! I may try making some black refried beans next time.

We leave out the olive oil to make a fat free beans and rice and use brown rice rather than white. Quick and easy alternative to boiling dried beans or using a slow cooker.

I didn't know what some of the ingredients were so I just skipped them and they tasted just fine. My five year old is a picky eater and he loves this.

Black Beans & Rice Haiku: "I LOVE Goya stuff. Didn't have the Recaito, so used cilantro." I used just about all of the Goya products called for in the ingredient list other than the Recaito which I didn't have, so I tossed in a handful of chopped cilantro. Really great stuff - incredibly easy to put together and delicious over rice.
