Next, cook your beans until tender. Then remove the onion and kombu and simmer for another minutes to evaporate some of the extra moisture. This is also an excellent time to add your salt and other seasonings. For a smoky, spicy note, we added cumin powder and two chipotles in adobo sauce.

Since I had already soaked mine overnight I threw them in with a carton of chicken broth, chipotle chili powder, cumin powder, salt, paprika and the five crushed garlic cloves, brought to a boil and simmered for an hour. It was easy peasy and had a good amount of flavour even when drained and rinsed.
Just made these and my Mexican family was very impressed! My mother said that one of the secrets is to not add salt until after they begin to soften-can cause them to stay hard! Just a thought. Thanks for all of your hard work xx. Nice recipe. I rate this 4. I think the broth made them even more rich! But yes, they would probably be best frozen with some liquid for reheating purposes.
The best beans are simmered with your preferred herbs and spices. I like to saute onions and garlic until brown and add them in the last 30 minutes of cooking. I sometimes will cook the onions and garlic in bacon drippings or add a few ham hocks in it.
Another delicious and fail proof recipe. It came together so easily and has a rich, smokey flavor. Love it! This recipe made very yummy beans! I soaked mine overnight and the beans cooked in under an hour—probably 45 mins. Very tender and flavourful! You may want to correct your post. Cumin does not add smokiness. Chipotles add the smokiness being that they are smoked jalapenos in Adobo sauce. Cumin is a common Mexican spice found in everything from taco seasoning to guacamole. I would also have to agree that the cook time should be extended, or simply soak the beans.
I am in MX and there is no way that I will find Kombu here. The flavor is already great though. Hi Jenny, sometimes if the beans have been sitting on the shelf too long, they have trouble softening. Better luck next time! Using dry beans without soaking. You may want to boil the water in th pot first. Then shut off boiling water and add the dry beans. Let them sit for at least an hour.
Then pour out the water and refill with clean liquids and then follow recipe. Boil pot of water, shut off, drain water, refill and start recipe for tender beans. After a decade of cooking with dried beans I thought I was fairly expert….
Great texture and tenderness, and a rally lovely roundness to the flavour. This fall we had a HUGE harvest of habanero peppers so I used half of a pepper, no seeds or membrane, instead of the chipotle. It was just the right heat. One question: does this recipe double or triple well? At very high altitude, you'll need to use a pressure cooker. The beans did not even come close to cooking in the time specified.
They also dried out and stuck to the bottom. Clearly more liquid and time are needed. Take the time to roast the poblanos! Add a little squeeze of lime. Delete the jalapeno if you don't like it picante. I have a 3-quart Instant, so I cut the amounts pretty much in half, and set the dry black beans to pressure cook for 45 minutes. I served them over white rice and with freshly baked cornbread muffins. The meals was a hit with my spouse.
Luckily, this Mexican bean lasagne is just as delicious as the beany enchiladas were. If you prefer a saucier lasagne, feel free to add more cheese sauce, or to add a tin of tomatoes to the spicy bean filling.
