      *I love black beans and use them a lot. I decided to make a double-batch of black beans and use them in as many ways as I could think of for dinner. With the rising cost of meat, we need to find alternative means of protein. In my opinion, not only are black beans the tastiest, but the most protein equivalent to meat. I also wanted to test just how far I could take black beans. I think that I did pretty well!
