Cubans love black beans and rice. They flavor it with onion, garlic, lime and other spices. It simmers for several hours in a slow cooker to blend the flavors together and then usually served alongside Cuban-style rice.
"Tastes great but the beans never quite softened. For those of you in latitudes that have a hard time using dried beans in a crockpot, I'd add the step of over night soaking to the beginning of the recipe."- susanwillowarnold
