Mexican Black Beans (Frijoles Negros con Hoja de Aguacate)
This authentic Mexican black bean recipe uses avocado leaves to add a flavor reminiscent of anise. If you don't have a Latin market in your area you'll likely have to go online, though it's worth it. But even if you leave them out, you'll still have an awesome pot of healthy black beans.
Make Ahead Tip: Cover and refrigerate for up to 3 days; reheat just before serving.
