Cook Time1 hour 30 minutes
Servings - 8 servings


  • 1 lb. dried black beans
  • 2 mangoes, diced
  • 10 cilantro stems with leaves, chopped
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • Salt and pepper
  • (Optional: 2 cups of chicken or vegetable broth)


  • Rinse and soak the dried beans. Drain and add to a large saucepan.
  • Fill the saucepan with water (and add 2 cups of broth if you'd like additional flavor), so it covers the beans with at least 1 inch of liquid.
  • Add the mangoes, chopped cilantro, cumin and some salt and pepper. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to medium, cover and cook for an hour. After an hour, test the softness of the beans. Cook longer, checking every 10 minutes, if the beans are not tender.
  • Prepare rice or other side dish.
  • Serve Black Beans with Mango & Cilantro over brown rice or with other side dish.
