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. You are just heating them through and then serving. 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!
