Quick Black Beans Recipe

I always have sofrito in my freezer in ice cube trays to whip up the tastiest beans whenever my husband asks for them, it’s his favorite! On nights I don’t have time to make them from scratch, I whip up this easy canned black beans version! This would work fine with red or pink beans as well.  It’s vegetarian and gluten free, loaded with fiber and works as a main or a side dish over rice. You might also like my Quick Cuban Black Beans or these quick Puerto Rican Beans using canned beans as well.

This easy Puerto Rican Sofrito recipe is one of my favorites. I freeze the sauce in ice cube trays and keep it stocked in my freezer so I always have it when I need to whip up a quick meal. Dishes, like beans, stews, and arroz con gandules, all benefit from one or two of these instant flavor boosters, which I melt and sauté into whatever I’m cooking. I recently shared a recipe on instagram for my quick gandules (coming soon!) which so many people asked me to share, but I couldn’t without this recipe that I use as my base.
