Tacos Carnitas with Slow-Cooked Black Beans, Roasted Tomato Mango Salsa, Avocado and Feta
The past two days I’ve posted recipes for carnitas and salsa, now for the black beans so you can assemble these delicious tacos!
I’ve never made black beans before, since you can buy a can for 99 cents in Brooklyn, but now that the same can is “exotic”, hard to locate, and $4, I’ve started looking at making my own.  I went for this recipe here, because who wouldn’t trust those guys?  I soaked the beans in warm/hot water for an hour or two instead of overnight (taco night was a last minute plan), and I wasn’t sure it was working for a while… the recipe didn’t mention if you add the liquid with the cooked beans to saute… I did.  I ended up simmering for closer to 45 minutes but in the end it worked out fine.  I would say remove them from the water (or at least pour out some of it) instead of dumping the pot in, and I should mention this makes a ton of black beans.  About 8 serves.
