Recipe: Creamy Black Beans

Recipe: Creamy Black Beans

Are you a fan of beans? I absolutely adore them in all varieties and with practically every meal. Mexican food will forever be one of my favorite comfort foods, and you can’t have Mexican food without some really good beans.

These creamy black beans are some of the best I’ve made, hands down. They’ve super simple and are loaded with flavor; when the beans are still hot, stir in the crumbled queso fresco and chopped cilantro. The creaminess of the cheese and the brightness of the cilantro will instantly fuse into the beans, and you’ll be in heaven. They’re not too runny, either, and would be great as a base for nachos!
