Black Bean Ole’Phillip
Our Aunt Bev Loves her black beans. She suggests 1 lb. Black Beans, 1-14 oz. can whole tomatoes, 8 Tbls. Bolner’s Fiesta Brand® Black Bean Ole’ Seasoning, 1 1/2 quarts water, and 1 lb. ham chunks or sausage. Rinse beans and cover with water and tomatoes. Cover and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer 2-3 hours or until tender adding hot water when needed. Add 8 tablespoons Bolner’s Fiesta Brand® Black Bean Ole’ Seasoning, ham or sausage if you desire it and simmer another 30 minutes. Garnish with sour cream, pico-de-gallo and Monterey Jack Cheese. Black Bean Ole’ may be prepared ahead and frozen. Serve as an entree or as a side dish with Fajitas, Mexican Rice or puree for chalups, crispy tacos or Mexican style layer dip.
