Eating as little as a half a cup of beans a day can be beneficial in reaching your dietary needs.

My husband loves fajitas! It's the only thing he ordered while we vacationed in Mexico... every single day! I could never order the same meal everyday, but that's a different story. These shrimp fajitas he claimed were better than any he's ever eaten in a restaurant. Wow! Now that's a compliment from my fajita loving husband!

This is a delicious black bean recipe from my Brazilian/Argentinian cousin, Katia. She makes the best black beans, the recipe handed down to her from her father, another great cook. Black beans are loaded with fiber. Try this over white rice with chimichurri sauce, for wonderful fusion of flavors from Argentina and Brazil.
