|Vegan Dump Dinner: Cuban Black Beans|
These are perfect for busy days when you'll be coming home late and/or tired. They're also perfect for new baby time, convalescing, or those days when you need someone to cook who doesn't know your kitchen.
But, finding good, easy vegan dump dinners can be a challenge. There are lots of meaty dump dinners out there, but very few vegetarian or vegan ones. And most of those are soup. While I like soup a lot, I don't want it every meal. A little variety is good : )
This is my latest innovation - Cuban Black Beans. They can be served over rice, with crusty bread, or as Black Bean Enchiladas - rolled up in a Tortilla, covered with Enchilada Sauce, and baked (or even microwaved ; ) to warm : ) Or as Wet Burritos (aka Smothered Burritos). Scroll on down for directions for all!
|Vegan Dump Dinner: Cuban Black Beans for Fill-Your-Own-Tortilla Night|
Here's the plan:
Cuban Black Beans
Label Gallon Zipper Bag and fill as follows:
3 (15 oz) cans Black Beans, drained and rinsed
1 (15 oz) can Chopped Tomatoes with Juice
1 (8 oz) can Sliced Mushrooms, drained
1 (12 oz) Frozen Bag 3 Pepper and Onion Mix (or 1 cup each, Sliced Bell Pepper & Sliced Onion)
2 Tablespoons Homemade Taco Seasoning (or 1 envelope store-bought)
2 T water
Toss bag in Freezer. The day before you plan to enjoy this meal, put it in the fridge in a plastic box (to prevent drips) and defrost. The day you plan to eat it, put it in the slow cooker, and cook on high 3-4 hours.
Serve over Rice.
Or with Crusty Bread.
Or for a Fill-Your-Own-Tortilla night.
Or make Enchiladas: fill tortillas, top with Enchilada Sauce and bake 350 degrees, 15 minutes.
Or Wet Burritos: Instead of Enchilada Sauce, mix 1 (8oz) can Tomato Sauce with 1 1/2 to 2 Tablespoons Taco Seasoning, and use to top Tortillas which are filled with this filling. I like to line up 9 of these in a 9x13 glass casserole, for an attractive presentation. Heat in oven or Microwave. When serving, top with Shredded Lettuce, Tomatoes, and Avocados, if desired.
