These beans were a perfect side to Tinga poblana de pollo. They have just a hint of sweetness and complemented the spicy chicken dish beautifully. I made them a day ahead because I think that beans, like chili, always taste better the next day. For those who had issues using canned beans, dried beans are healthier, tastier, and have a much better texture than canned. You do not need to soak overnight. Boil the beans in water for two minutes and then let them sit for one hour. Drain, rinse, and continue on with the recipe. I will use these as a vegetarian filling for tortillas, as well as a side.
