I love to season beans differently with the various seasonings available in the many cuisines from countires and regions. These black beans are seasoned liberally with from scratch jamaican jerk seasoning. You can use premade jamaican jerk blend or other blends like cajun spice etc. Add whatever spices and herbs you have to the beans. Use other beans for variation. Toss in some chopped veggies or summer squash to cook with the beans.
These Summer Tacos are ready within 25 minutes! What are your favorite spice blends or seasoning to use with black beans?
