It’s no secret that I love cooking with beans. Besides being incredibly healthy for you, beans are super convenient to add to recipes (like this seriously delicious Mexican Baked Penne shown above), especially if you are crunched for time. As a busy mom, that convenience is much appreciated that’s for sure. I don’t know if I could pick a favorite bean, but black beans are probably the most cooked bean in my household. And I have the collection of recipes to prove it.
If you are trying to incorporate more beans in your diet, or are just looking for new inspiration for cooking with black beans, you are in the right place…check out these 7 great ways to use a can of black beans.
