Homemade stovetop black beans cooked with spices on the stovetop. This recipe can be served as a side dish with rice, added to your favorite soup, or as a filling for enchiladas.
Black beans are a favorite in our house. Beans in general really because they're easy to make and versatile. Dried beans are super cheap, easy to make, last forever in the pantry, and the leftovers can be stored in the freezer. They make a great side dish or main course. They're a great source of fiber or protein.
Dried Black Bean Cooking Options
Cooking dried black beans, or any dried beans is very simple. The stovetop method is my favorite way to prepare dried beans. The slower cooker is another great and easy cooking method.
If you like things spice, you can include a couple of jalapenos to the pot or slower cooker. They can be sliced or added whole.
Freezer Options for the Stovetop Black Beans
My freezer is usually well-stocked with cooked beans. I'll make a batch of beans and divide the beans into 2 cup portions; that way if we want black beans with my tacos or need them for a soup, they're always ready. It's like having canned beans on hand minus all the sodium.
