You're welcome Sizz,
This is going to sound nuts, but I had made some enchilladas and the kids wanted refried beans, I had no pinto beans so I took a can a couple of cans of black beans, rinsed them, sauteed some chopped white onion in bacon drippings, salt and pepper and added a little chicken stock so they weren't so thick..Mashed with a potato masher and we had them with melted cheese on top along with the enchilladas.
I've also added them to veggie soups, heck beans are beans in soup unless it's just a baked bean recipe or one calling for a certain bean.
My grandmother use to make black beans with left over chunks of ham, chicken stock or beef which ever she had, add sauteed onion, garlic some water and chopped tomatoes, let it cook down a little and served it over rice.
A black bean soup made with onion,some garlic,celery,cumin tabasco, cooked then pureed, put on rimmed plate, topped with a crab or tuna cakes then sprinkled with chopped cilantro and lime wedges. You want the soup to cook down and not be to soup when pureed. That's about all I've done.

Sounds amazing Kades. I'm going to pick up the items tomorrow for the salad and give it a try this weekend. I'm sure I'll find I love Black Beans and I'll be trying out some other things.

Glad I could help, Sizz.
I made some of the salad for our dinner, and didn't have enough of the rice vinegar for my taste so I just squeezed some lime juice in the salad and mixed it with the vinegar, I loved it..I think from now on, I'll use a mixture of the vinegar and lime juice to season with.

Like Kadesma I have always called this a salad, but it looks like it might be what you are asking for. I use S&W low sodium black beans.

Black Bean Salad
2 cans black beans, drained and rinsed
1 can of corn, drained
1 red bell pepper, diced
1 green bell pepper, diced
1 yellow bell pepper, diced
1 jalapeno pepper, minced
1/2 cup red onion
3 cloves garlic, minced
1/4 cup cilantro, chopped
1/4 cup olive oil
4-5 tablespoons red wine vinegar
1 teaspoon lime juice
Freshly ground pepper
Salt
Tortilla chips

Cut all the bell peppers and the red onion into 1/4 inch dice. In a salad bowl, combine the black beans, bell peppers, jalapeno pepper, onion, corn kernels, garlic and cilantro and toss to mix. Whisk together the olive oil, vinegar, lime juice and salt and pepper to taste. Toss dressing with other ingredients. Serve with tortilla chips.
