"I am not claiming this to be an authentic Cuban dish, rather my version of it. I hope that you enjoy. Garnish with chopped green onions, chopped cilantro, lime wedges, and sour cream."

  • Prep

  • Cook

  • Ready In

  1. Bring water and rice to a boil in a saucepan. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer until the rice is tender and liquid has been absorbed, 20 to 25 minutes.
  2. Heat olive oil in a stockpot over medium-high heat; saute onion, bell pepper, carrots, celery, and garlic in hot oil until tender, about 5 minutes.
  3. Mix black beans with liquid, chorizo, chicken stock, picante sauce, bay leaves, paprika, red wine vinegar, cumin, sugar, salt, black pepper, and red pepper flakes together in the pot with the onion mixture; bring to a boil, reduce heat to medium-low, place a cover on the pot, and simmer until the beans have softened, about 30 minutes.
  4. Remove lid from pot and continue cooking until the mixture reaches your desired consistency, at least 20 minutes more. Remove bay leaves and adjust seasoning to your preferences. Serve over rice.

Footnotes

  • Cook's Note:
  • To kick up the rice, mix into the hot cooked rice a tablespoon of butter, 1/4 cup of chopped cilantro, and a tablespoon of fresh lime juice. Pour beans on top to serve.
  • Use any type of smoked sausage in place of chorizo at your pleasure.
  • Tip
  • Aluminum foil helps keep food moist, ensures it cooks evenly, keeps leftovers fresh, and makes clean-up easy.

This was great. I accidentally bought plain uncooked chorizo so I had to sauté it first before adding it to the beans. Even without the smoked flavor that would have been added by the smoked cho...

These beans can also be served as a side dish without the rice. Add more vinegar for extra tang.

Made this Christmas Eve for our eclectic celebration. To make it vegetarian friendly, I used vegetable broth, eliminated the chorizo and added 1 T of liquid smoke to add some depth to the broth....

What an amazing recipe. The only thing I would change is to place making the rice at the end instead of at the beginning. Overall I would change absolutely nothing about the ingredients and ta...

Totally different flavor than any other black beans I have ever eaten. For the beans, we made our own salsa from scratch and used smoked ham and no sausage. I used balsamic vinegar and this gave...

Absolutely loved this. I used andouli sausage as our store was out of chorizo. I am sure it made a little flavor difference, but it was still great. I used yellow rice as that is what my husba...
