These slow cooker Caribbean black beans aren’t only delicious.

They’re super healthy.

Economical.

And versatile.

I served them with yellow rice for supper one night.

And then scooped them on top of salads for lunch.

They’d be good as a side dish, stuffed into burritos, used to make skinny cheese & black bean nachos, or turned into soup too.

Everyone who tried this batch of slow cooker Caribbean black beans gave them an enthusiastic thumbs up. Making beans delicious is all about the seasoning. And this combination of spices and mango is truly magical.

Recipe type: Main
Serves: 12
Ingredients
  • 1 pound dried black beans, soaked overnight and drained.
  • 2 mangoes, peeled, pitted and diced, divided use
  • 4 garlic cloves, minced (I used jarred)
  • 1 teaspoon curry powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground allspice
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1 teaspoon Tabasco sauce, plus more for serving
  • 4 cups vegetable broth
  • Salt and pepper
Instructions
  1. Ideal Slow Cooker Size: 6-Quart
  2. Place the beans in the slow cooker. Set aside ½ cup of the diced mango for adding at the end. Add the remaining mango, garlic, curry powder, allspice, paprika, ginger, Tabasco sauce and vegetable broth. Stir well.
  3. Cover and cook on LOW for 8 to 10 hours or until the beans are completely soft. The mango will melt into the bean juices during the long slow cooking. Just before serving carefully stir in the remaining ½ cup mango. Taste and add salt and pepper and more Tabasco to suit your tastes.
