Slow Cooker Puerto Rican Black Beans are loaded with flavor from the sofrito and cilantro. Sere with rice for a delicious meatless meal or side dish. And Lydia’s post has a recipe for the sofrito if you’re not sure what that is!
(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!
