Black beans have long been a staple food in many cultures (particularly in Cuban and other Latin American cuisines), as well as a perennial favorite of vegans and vegetarians. They're cheap, hearty, nutritious, and delicious, and can be dressed up in countless ways. You could even slip them into dessert (black bean brownies, anyone?), but here are some of our favorite savory recipes for the humble protein. Cooked with a bottle of Mexican beer, these black beans are seasoned with a paste of ancho chiles, onion, serrano pepper, tomato, and oregano. If you don't have Mexican beer on hand, you can use a pilsner or a lager if you have that in the fridge. Just don’t use a super hoppy beer or IPA.
