In a hurry? These beans will be done in 30 minutes. They will taste as if you been cooking them all day. When you don't have time to make the classic Cuban Black beans which take about four to six hours. Here is my recipe made with canned black beans. I prefected it one afternoon when in a pinch for time. They tasted almost as good as my six hour recipe Enjoy

How to Make Quick Cuban Black Beans

Step-by-Step

  1. We will make a Sofrito first. It is made in almost all of Spanish,Cuban or Puerto Rican cooking.
    Heat oil in a deep pot. Add onion, green pepper, garlic, and olives saute about 5 minutes until onion and green peppers are limp.
  2. Next to your sofrito add vinegar, wine, sugar, bay leaf, oregano, cumin, salt, black pepper and adobe seasoning. Stir well and continue to cook five more minutes.
  3. Next open cans of black beans and add to the sofrito with 1/2 cup water. Cover and Simmer for five more minutes on medium flame. Serve on top of white rice with strips of red pimentos prppers on top of beans as a garnish. You may adjust easonings to your taste salt and pepper before serving. "Buen Provecho" Enjoy
  4. The above picture shows my wings from another recipe that I have posted. The picture is just an example of how you can serve your black beans usually on top of white rice. Enjoy
