(For Friday Favorites we spotlight past recipes that you may have missed, and Lydia's version of Puerto Rican Black Beans With Sofrito and Cilantro is one I have on my "must-try" list!)

It took three tries for Lydia to perfect these Slow Cooker Puerto Rican Black Beans with Sofrito and Cilantro from The Perfect Pantry, but after reading through her final recipe I think she has come up with a keeper.  Start with dried beans which are cooked with sofrito, a blend of chopped peppers, tomato, onion, garlic, cilantro, and parsley, as well as spices like cumin and oregano and a few other seasonings.  Once these were in the slow cooker, Lydia says she only stirred once, and after about 7 hours dinner was ready!
