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.
1. Rinse beans. In a large saucepan, combine beans and 4 cups water. Bring to boiling; reduce heat. Simmer for 10 minutes. Remove from heat. Cover and let stand for 1 hour. Drain and rinse beans.
2. Place beans in a 3 1/2 to 4 quart slow cooker. Add broth, onion, bay leaves, jalapeno peppers, garlic, cumin, lime peel, lime juice, salt and black pepper. Cover; cook on low heat setting for 10 to 12 hours or on high heat setting for 5 to 6 hours. Remove bay leaves. Mash beans slightly.
3. Serve beans with hot cooked Cuban-style rice. If desired, garnish with cilantro and serve with jalapeno pepper slices and lime wedges.
