Easy Mexican Black Beans

We make these Southwestern Black Beans every time we eat Mexican food at home. They are SO easy and SOOOOO delicious! There are only 4 ingredients and they only take about 5 minutes to make. Just heat them through and then serve. We eat these beans with all of our Mexican casseroles and with taco night. They are our go-to side. I’ve been making these for years!

As I said, there are only 4 ingredients in these beans – black beans, lime juice, Rotel diced tomatoes and green chiles, and chili powder. If you are sensitive to heat make sure to buy MILD diced tomatoes and green chiles.
