Expert Tips

You're probably most familiar with pimientos as a stuffing in green olives. Pimientos can be purchased canned or bottled. They taste sweeter and more succulent than red bell peppers.

This black bean dish tastes great as a meatless main dish with rice. Place a mound of hot rice in the middle of each individual shallow bowl and spoon the black bean mixture around the rice. Serve with plenty of chopped red onion and hard-cooked eggs to sprinkle on top.
