Luuuuucy, you got some splainin’ to do!
Cuba makes me think of one thing: Ricky Ricardo. I Love Lucy may just be my favorite TV show. I always turn to Lucy, Ricky, Fred, and Ethel to comfort me whenever I am sick or overly stressed. The five of us have been through some tough times, such as the great flu debacle of 2011 and right now we’re going through graduate application madness of fall 2011.
Together with the gang and with the health power of black beans, I can do anything! I love beans plain, but I needed a simple way to jazz them up a little. This recipe is an easy way to give beans some flavor. I buy dry beans to save a little money, but canned beans will also work just fine. Also, the original recipe included green peppers, but I just won’t go there. You can, but I would not advise consuming those things.
5 cloves garlic, minced
Dash of cumin
Serves 4 as a side dish.
