If my friends and I were stuck on a deserted island and were only allowed one nutritious food, I think hands down we would all choose black beans. We have quite an affinity for them and have sometimes been known to eat them right out of the colander upon rinsing. I made this recipe for a summer party a few years ago and couldn't believe what a success it was! In fact, given today's balmy 80 degree weather, I thought it would make a perfect addition to dinner tonight.
A quick rinse of the black beans
A quick chop of peppers, onion, cilantro (optional)
