This Cuban Black Bean recipe is one of our "go-to" dishes when I know we are going to have a busy day. I simply prepare them in the Instant Pot, go about my business and have a meal ready in no time.

Black beans are a great source of plant based protein. They contain approx. 8 g of protein per 1/2 cup of cooked beans. Black beans are incredibly versatile, we make extra and can also use them for 2-3 separate meals if needed during the week. We use them on our rice or quinoa bowls, in our burritos, on our loaded nachos, and for our quesadillas after ground up to a paste... Yummm!!

These Cuban Black Beans store well in the refrigerator in an air tight container for about 3-4 days. They also store well in the freezer for 1-2 months. When freezing, I separate them into small (1/2 cup or 1 cup) portions so I can pull out just enough for a single meal.

Hope you enjoy this delicious recipe as much as we do!
