Cheeseburger Pasta PotBeasts
If you grew up in middle America in the 80’s or 90’s (maybe prior; not sure when it was launched)You probably had Hamburger Helper at least a few times. It was a regular at my house growing up. It was cheap, fast, easy, and foolproof. Enough so that it was one of the first things I started making for myself as an older kiddo. This recipe is free from those nasty additives, but full of the yumm. (and even has some veggies, added! Look at me mom!)

This classic Cuban Black Beans recipe is adapted from “Tastes Like Cuba,” by Eduardo Machado and Michael Domitrovich.

Feel free to add fresh cilantro for that extra punch at the moment of serving.
