Where do Black Beans Go??
Do you ever wonder what the deal is with black beans? Are they a protein? A vegetable? Some people call them a fruit!

But folks, we realized that the questions don’t really matter, because they’re delicious! And you can add them to literally any meal. Even brunch (keep reading, we’ll tell you how).
Black beans are staples in Central and South American cuisines, so put them in your tacos or mix them with rice add some lime and cilantro. But don’t stop there! Mix them with pineapple, green pepper, chicken and any of our Latin sauces. They bring out the flavor of shrimp, so mix the two up with some Jalapeno Lime sauce, corn and peppers. Love our honey garlic sauce? Pair it with black beans and broccoli. Black beans even go with marinara, so grab some sausage, peppers and onions and you have a creative twist on Italian! Mangia!
