Black Beans Make The Easiest Meal On The Planet

Dinner has never been so simple.

If you bother keeping a pantry stocked, chances are you've got a can of black beans on hand at all times. This is great. You never know when you're going to have a pathetically empty fridge and need to rely on the goods in the cupboard to make a meal.

When you find yourself in that situation, you're going to need recipes to make sure you aren't stuck with another meal of rice and beans. Don't get us wrong, we love rice and beans, but there's a lot more you can make with a can of black beans. Easy and awesome meals too.

While we love canned black beans for the absolute convenience, we think you all should know that making a pot of beans couldn't be easier -- and the taste is 1,000 times worth the minimal effort. But whichever black bean you use, dried or canned, these are the recipes you need to turn them into a totally awesome, and ridiculously easy, meal.
