Mexican Black Beans

 Before we get to the Black Beans, don’t forget to enter my giveaway to win a $25 gift card to Starbucks, I-Tunes or Target here! You have until tonight (Friday night) at midnight to enter!  I make these black beans all the time.  They are actually one of the first things I ever posted on the blog but they were buried in another post and with a terrible picture and I just thought that didn’t do them justice.  This is the perfect Mexican side dish and can easily be doubled & tripled for a crowd.  It has a great depth of flavor and also adds so much to tacos or burritos.  I love to eat them by themselves too! Oh and I use Mojo Marinade in these, you can find them in the Mexican aisle at your grocery. Its a citrus marinade for chicken but it goes great in these beans.  Alternatively you can use additional olive oil with a squeeze of lime to get that citrus flavor.
