"Black beans are so sexy…" I think Nell Carter sang that.
They are my favorite beans. Odd thing is, I cannot cook them to save my life. I have tried to cook dry black beans no less than two dozen times in my life. I’ve tried countless recipes. The beans just seem to steal all added flavors and become dull. But in a restaurant, or when someone else cooks them, they’re great. I makes me sad.
I have to make do with canned Goya black beans. Fortunately, they’re pretty good.
