Cuban Beans take standard black beans to a whole other level. Seasoned with cumin and other spices along with some bell pepper and onions.
Served along with rice and topped with an egg, makes for a nice brunch or even easy breakfast for dinner idea that is amazing!
I made this with some leftover cilantro rice that we had with dinner the night before, but if you’re making this fresh, just add a cup of rice in the rice cooker along with 2 tbsp of butter.
Season with salt and add some chopped cilantro and you’re ready to rock this cuban bean breakfast.
So for these cuban beans, simmer a can of black beans, with the liquid. We’re going to thicken up that liquid up as it simmers down along with fresh belpepper, green onion, and spiced.
This makes a great pantry meal, that let’s face it – is perfect timing for whats going on in the world right now.
But quarantine life aside – it’s a great way to snazz up a can of black beans and can’t go wrong with an egg.
And a nice side of spicy pico de gallo.
