Homestyle Black Beans

40 Min

If early Southwesterners had had indoor stoves and canned beans, they'd have loved them for making Homestyle Black Beans, a favorite dish that used to be simmered for hours over the fire. These don't cook that long, but they taste like it!

What You'll Need

  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 large green bell pepper, finely chopped
  • 6 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 (15-ounce) cans black beans packed in water, undrained
  • 1 cup water
  • 2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
  • 3 bay leaves

What to Do

  1. In a medium saucepan, heat oil over medium-high heat; saute pepper and garlic for 8 to 10 minutes, or until pepper is tender.
  2. Add remaining ingredients; reduce heat to medium-low and simmer uncovered for 30 minutes. Be sure to remove bay leaves before serving. Serve immediately.


Black beans are typically served over cooked white or yellow rice.
