Expert Tips

Try serving these black beans with poached eggs instead of rice. Place a poached egg on top of each serving of beans. Spoon your favorite salsa or drizzle hot sauce onto the egg, and top it off with a sprinkle of shredded Cheddar cheese and chopped fresh cilantro.

Serve bowls of chopped red onion and hard-cooked eggs to sprinkle on top for a traditional black bean and rice dish.
