Best Black Beans EVER!

I have found the best, most delicious black bean recipe EVER! You are going to want to try these me!
This black bean recipe has quickly become one of our favourite "go-to" recipe for a number of reasons.

1 - they are easy to make and an excellent recipe for kids to help with or make themselves,
2 - they are so versatile, we enjoy these beans in a lot of different ways and
3 - (the most important point) they are SO delicious!

And it doesn't hurt that they are a great way to replace some meat and add fibre, protein and vitamins and minerals like folate and iron to your diet (but that's just the dietitian in me talking).

We use these black beans to make black bean tacos. I have also added them to scrambled eggs and a breakfast burrito. We have enjoyed them in a Buddha Bowl and our Mexican Chicken Bowl. And I think they would be an excellent addition to a taco salad!
