CREAMY BLACK BEANS

On September 9, 2015 by Tina Diep

creamybackbeans_FBlack beans have become one of our favorite dishes at home after finally finding the right combination of spices and the perfect cooking time. I have tried many different recipes back in the days but nothing that gave me a good creamy sauce. The secret to making the creamy black beans is actually adding tomato paste it just gives the right texture. It’s easy to make the dish but the downside is the cooking time. It takes about 2 hours to cook in a pot, but if you have a crockpot then you can just throw it in the crockpot in the morning and come home to a warm and delicious meal.

I prefer to serve it over rice (for a healthier version I cook 2/3 of brown rice with 1/3 of wild rice) and a bit of shredded cheese and then topping the beans with a dollop of sour cream and a sprinkle of cilantro. You can eat it just like that or spoon the rice and beans up with organic blue corn tortilla chips.

For this dish you need to make natural taco seasoning mix that I have posted previously. It’s a lot of spices to buy if you don’t have them already but it will be worth the money as you can add this taco seasoning to any meat, tofu and vegetables you like. Just remember to add some tomato paste and water for the meat and tofu dishes.
