Cuban Black Beans

I interrupt all this Christmas decor to share an amazing recipe with you guys!  Black beans, are they part of your regular food repertoire?  I'll be honest and say they weren't on mine, until I had these!

Our older son is engaged to a precious girl from Miami. She has introduced us to a whole new world of food.  She is part Cuban and Colombian and brings her culture to our table every time she visits!  Andrew kept telling me we had to try these black beans boy, was he right!  They are delish!  She was gracious to prepare these and let me photograph as she went so I could share with you all.

2 cans of unseasoned black beans
2 teaspoons of oregano
1 teaspoon of cumin
half of a medium onion
3 cloves of garlic
2 bay leaves
1 teaspoon of sugar
1 teaspoon of vinegar
2.5 teaspoons of Adobo Seasonings
3-4 larges pieces of red and yellow bell peppers
1 packet of chicken bullion

Coat a sauce pan with olive oil.  Saute minced garlic, cumin, Adobo seasoning & oregano.  Add  onion & peppers sliced in halves. When this is lightly sauteed add the remaining ingredients.  Let this simmer for 40 minutes on low.

  Before serving we removed the peppers and chunk of onion.  Add salt to taste.

Everywhere we go we now take these black beans and everyone always wants the recipe!!!  Many thanks to my future daughter in law for sharing her family recipe!!
