Beans are a staple ingredient in Colombian cuisine. I could eat them every day and be a happy girl. Beans are one of those ingredients that can be used in so many delicious ways, like with these Patacones with Black Beans, Mango and Avocado I whipped up the other day.
If you need an easy to prepare yet impressive appetizer, or a wonderful side dish, look no further! These patacones or tostones topped with black beans, creamy avocado, and mango can make a great addition to your next fiesta or game-day spread. There is an abundance of flavors and textures coming together in this dish, but they all harmonize perfectly.
I used black beans for my topping, but you can substitute them with your favorite beans. You may also change the mango for pineapple, if you prefer.
