This isn't even an actual recipe. It's a total HACK. But, it tastes very good. I have served it to strangers (guests) who agree.

1 can Goya Black Bean Soup.
1/2 cup chopped celery
1/2 cup chopped onion
1/2 cup chopped carrots.
1 cup chopped mushrooms.

Saute the vegetables in butter and garlic powder. Season with sea salt. Let them "caramelize" and "sweat. add i/2 cup of flat leaf parsley. And lots of cumin. Or to taste.

Add sherry cooking wine. Marsala is OK too.

Serve over wild and brown rice.

3 Guys from Miami have a wonderful recipe for Cuban black beans and rice. I love them too, so have tried this recipe.

I'm going to try this recipe tomorrow, but I don't have a pressure cooker, so mine will take longer and be cooked in the Le Creuset dutch oven.

I make a sofrito of onion, green bell pepper, garlic, fresh chopped tomatoes with seeds removed. While the sofrito is cooking, I add a couple bay leaves, cumin, either adobo or salt and pepper. Then I'll add the black beans (I usually use canned) and chicken stock. It gets simmered until the beans have softened to my liking, adding stock as needed. I'll adjust the seasoning then as well. These make excellent re-fried beans.

Make sure you are buying fresh beans. Buy from bulk bins in preference to prepackaged. You’ve gotten some other good ideas here too.

White rice, a side of beans, and two fried eggs and if you could find plantains, some fried plantains on the side.
