Tender black beans with sauteed peppers, aromatics, and a dash of vinegar. This is a classic Cuban dish, prepared in a snap with canned instead of dried black beans. Perfect for today's busy lifestyle. A satisfying vegetarian dish! It's most often paired with white rice; here, Jenny also serves it up with picadillo and fried plantains.
