    D-E-L-I-C-I-O-U-S! This recipe was an absolute success- it was super super easy, fast to prepare, and oh so flavorful! I served it atop yellow rice and my family and I loved it! My husband kept saying uhmm...uhmm...after each bite.

    My favorite for this year. Make it often and this is the first time I've liked black beans!
