Black Beans

Last night we got a family meal from Qdoba. It came with a big container of black beans. I am the only one who ate any so we have a bunch left. Is there anything I can do with them? I only use them in burritos so I have no idea how to use them.

My family likes Zaterans jambalaya mix. I always add some drained and rinsed black beans when it is done cooking.

I put black beans in many things. I put them in salsa chicken. Many casseroles are good with black beans. brown up a meat (hamburger, chicken, polish sausage), put some Rotel tomatoes in, add the beans and heat up. I also put black beans in soups.

Lots of people eat them with sour cream, but that isn't my favorite.

I love them in Taco soup or Tex Mex soup with corn, meat and other veggies.

(I reduce the cilantro to a sprinkle of finely chopped--DH is in that 'tastes like soap" group)

I also like them in Cowboy Caviar--super good-- but I am not sure now that they've been cooked.

(I omit the black eyed peas.)

Throw them in your scrambled eggs with some onion, peppers, and cheese. Top with a little salsa. Delish!

I love them in a big green salad with shrimp or chicken, red onions, and cuties.

I also add them to this delicious salad:

Hummus or other dip

You could use them to make black bean hummus or other dip.

I like to blend them with salsa or pico. You could also just combine them without blending.

Black bean pizza!

Get a premade crust if you want to keep it simple.

Smash the beans with a touch of oil and cilantro or other seasoning you like.

Spread the beans on the crust.

Top with chopped green onions, bell pepper, shredded cheese.

Bake.
