Happy National Bean Day!

I know that, as a Latina, you must be just as excited about this food holiday as I am. It's no secret that our culture uses beans in a LOT of our favorite recipes. I mean, as a Cubana, I practically grew up on my abuelita's black beans alongside white rice, platanitos, and steak. Although I eat pretty differently these days (often opting for healthier versions of my Latin favorites), I still love beans. They're full of protein, flavor and, most of all, are a great warming dish during these cold months. So, go ahead and dig in to our 8 favorite Latin bean recipes to celebrate National Bean Day! I guarantee you'll love it.
