Guatemalan Style Black Beans
These beans are tasty yet very simple to put together. I got this recipe from my Guatemalan boyfriend's aunt. Hope you enjoy.
- 1 lb dried black beans
- 6-8 cups water (or enough to cover beans)
- 1 large onion
- 5 garlic cloves, whole
- 4 tablespoons vegetable consomme (or bullion)
- 2 teaspoons salt
Soak beans over night.
When ready place all ingredients in either a slow cooker, pressure cooker or stock pot on the stove and let simmer all day on low. Usually around 6 hours.
Serve with sweet plantains, tortillas or fresh bread.
