Black beans are some of my favorites, and they are so enriched by bright orange zest, earthy cumin, and smoky-spicy chipotle! We used these to make what we call "Huevos Anova" (on a tostada, topped with a crispy-fried egg, avocado, fresh orange slices, and hot sauce!), but YOU can serve them anywhere black beans belong. Spice up your taco night!

Precision® Cookers

Edge-to-edge perfection. No skill required.

Ingredients for 6

  • 1 c/210 g dry black beans

  • 2 2/3 c/630ml water

  • 1/3 c/75 ml fresh squeezed orange juice

  • 2 Tablespoons/25g orange zest

  • 1 teaspoon/5g salt

  • 1 teaspoon/4g cumin

  • 1/2 teaspoon/2g chipotle chili powder


  • Step 1

    Set your Anova Precision Cooker to 193ºF/89.4ºC.

  • Step 2

    Combine all of your ingredients in a zip-locking bag.

  • Step 3

    Using the immersion method, release as much air from the bag as possible.

  • Step 4

    Place into the bath and set the timer for 6 hours. Because this is quite a high temperature, it is recommended that you cover the surface with plastic wrap/cling film/Saran wrap to prevent heat loss and evaporation if your container is uncovered.

    • Finishing Steps

    • Step 0

      Remove bag from bath and pour contents into sauté pan on the stovetop over medium high heat.

    • Step 1

      Simmer until the desired amount of liquid has reduced. The flavors will become even more pronounced during this time, so no need to add more of anything.

    • Step 2

      Once your desired texture is reached, serve and enjoy!
