Moving Tests My Black Bean Recipe: Black Beans 1, Move 0

The movers are coming tomorrow, and my world is upside down—the man who gave the estimate told me that he has a private chef. I must be in the wrong business!

I need to keep this short, so I'll share what I learned about my black-bean recipe. It's more durable than I imagined, and practically bullet proof.

On Tuesday, distracted by the overwhelming amount of packing I needed to do, I used three cups of beans instead of two, and I lost track of the amount of water I put in the pot. It didn't matter. The beans turned out delicious. The secret: I went heavy on the salt, the cilantro, and the lime juice. Try it sometime. You can't miss.
