Cafe Rio Black Beans

Cafe Rio Black Beans

As I mentioned in a previous post I could live on black beans.  They are a staple in my house.  These beans are quick and easy.  They freeze well and combined with the cilantro lime rice they make the best salad, quesadillas, and burritos.  I usually make a big batch of the beans and rice to put together freezer burritos.  My husband lives on home made freezer burritos for lunch at work.

With a  few ingredients you can transform boring black beans.

    On a trip to Utah about 5 years ago, I had the pleasure of eating at Cafe Rio. The food was amazing. I was so pleased to find this recipe. We had beans and rice for supper, with homemade salsa and guacamole. So yummy! I had three helpings. 🙂

    Would you mind double checking the amount of black beans? I don’t think one 15 oz can is the same as 3 1/2 cups of cooked beans. Which one is correct?

      Hi Ven! Your right! It is 2 cups. I am SO sorry. I will change the recipe to reflect that. Thanks for letting me know.
