Black Beans
 Black Beans 

Black beans are also called black turtle soup beans, Mexican, or Spanish black beans. These beans are a staple of Latin American and Caribbean cuisine, where they're used to make side dishes, soups, bean dips, and salads. They have a strong, earthy flavor, so they're often combined with assertive flavorings.
