Rona2: Rancho Gordo Midnight Black Beans

So yummy we bought several bags of Midnight Black Beans!
Black beans are a favorite — they have a different taste than Pintos
and we use them in much the same way.

The first time I had black beans was in a bean soup with sherry and they were yummy,
but I prefer them in a simpler hearty Mexican dish.

I cooked them with the same basic soffritto of chopped celery, carrots, and
sauteed purple onion, but added a can of diced tomatoes with jalapenos.

We served them simple on the side with 4 oz pan-fried sliced steak, avocado,
and tried Massa Organics California Whole Grain Brown Rice.
*It is a slightly sweet/nutty brown rice.  We ended up ordering a couple of bags.*
We piled these into soft warmed tortillas served on the side with a little
hot organic salsa and what a filling tasty meal!

Leftovers the next day went into larger burritos!.

    Black beans are one of the few beans that I actually enjoy. Good choice for music today.
