Preparing tasty beans takes a bit more effort than scrapping them out from a can. Although, making great black beans are actually pretty easy to make. I hope you have your white rice ready, because you'll want that with these perfect black beans!
(so who's gonna send me some of their homemade black beans, though?)

What You'll Need:

1 can of black beans
1/2 small onion (chopped)
1/2 green bell pepper (chopped)
2 tablespoons of olive oil
1 teaspoon minced garlic
1 bay leaf
Salt and pepper to taste

How To Make It:

1) Heat oil in medium heat.
2) Cook garlic in oil for about 15 seconds. Stir in onion and green bell peppers.
3) Cook and stir for 10 minutes.
4) Pour all contents from can of black beans.
5) Simmer into thick -- about 15-20 minutes.

Buen Provecho!

Mmmm @jordanhamilton @alywoah you ladies got the right idea! ;D I'd love to try this recipe (plus the cayenne pepper) and add a pinch of spiced paprika. Or maybe some chipotle pepper. Yum!!
They are so good. I like them spicy too. I usually whip out cayenne pepper for them.
cayenne pepper, a little Sriracha and scotch bonnet sauce for the win!!!!
yes! sounds delicious @allischaaff
Yes, the spicier the better! :P @allischaaff
