Smoky, colorful and loaded with health, these Cuban black beans are a delicious meal on their own, but they also make a gorgeous side dish.

Cuban black beans with colorful bell peppers, sweet potatoes and cilantro in bowl with spoon.

With antioxidant-rich black beans, sweet potatoes and colorful bell peppers, these Cuban black beans are loaded with both healthful nutrition and tons of flavor.

This is a really simple recipe that requires few ingredients, but it delivers big flavor. This is also a great recipe to make in the crockpot, and you can also make it oil-free.

The stew gets its smoky flavor from ground cumin and oregano. Cuban recipes would likely not include sweet potatoes, but I like the slight sweetness they add, and they also bring so many health benefits with them.
