Black bean recipes start with quality ingredients
Quality and taste matter, and that’s why I’ve been using S&W Beans varieties – they offer garbanzo beans, kidney beans, pinto beans, cannellini beans, chili beans, black beans, and so many more! They’ve been in the business of beans for over 120 years and know what it takes to grow premium quality beans.
I tried out their organic black beans in this recipe, the taste speaks for itself! Open up a can and you’ll see, these beans look good and taste great. Try out this easy black bean and corn salad with red quinoa, it’s good stuff, y’all!
