These Restaurant-Style Black Beans are easy to make and packed with flavor and nutrients.
One of my son’s favorite restaurants is Moe’s Southwest Grill. It’s a fun place where they serve made-to-order southwest inspired foods.
My son loves their burritos. He always gets the same thing – chicken, black beans, rice, pico de gallo, sour cream and cheese on a whole wheat tortilla. I get pretty much the same thing, expect I also add lettuce and onions.
I have to admit, though, my favorite part is the black beans.
These are no ordinary, boring black beans. These are packed with flavor and texture.
They make a great side dish and are incredible when included in tacos, burritos, quesadillas or any recipe that calls for black beans.
