Cuban Style Black Beans

Ready for a really delicious side to our Pork Chile Verde or our Chicken Kabobs? Here come some tasty Cuban style black beans that give you just enough seasoning to stand out from the typical basic bean dish. Not made completely from scratch (we skipped the step of soaking dried beans), but it's still great and simple to make.
