Fiesta Black Beans

This is a great, simple side dish for your favourite Mexican entrees. It’s basically a sauteed medley of black beans, veggies, and seasonings, and it’s very customizable since you can swap out veggies and spices to your liking. We can’t say for sure, but we think this might be good chilled and served as a salad too…but again, don’t hold us to that.

We served this as a complement to our Crab Dip Stuffed Roasted Jalapenos, but we would highly suggest pairing it with our Chorizo and Black Bean Tacos with Avocado Margarita Sauce.
