Simple Black Beans with Tomatoes and Garlic

These black beans, inspired by beans we tasted in Oaxaca, Mexico, are flavorful enough to be served as a side dish, or you can use them as a filling for tacos or burritos. The tomatoes melt into the mix, lending the beans sweetness and acidity, as well as a dose of umami that makes the dish taste full and complex. For additional ideas on how to use the beans, see the following recipes.

Cups

Tip

Don't forget to squeeze the softened garlic cloves from the head into the beans when cooking is complete. Not only does the garlic boost flavor, their creamy consistency gives the beans a little thickness and body.
