If you’ve been longing for a good shrimp and black bean sauce, this has just what you need to satisfy your cravings. The chilies, tomatoes, and peppers add heat, while the beans and rice add a complex flavor that balances out the chilies.
This is not a dish that is particularly rare, but it does happen occasionally. The chilies used to be a standard part of every shrimp and rice dish, but recently the chilies have been phased out. Nowadays, we prefer to use chilis that have been pre-roasted. The chilis are then left open at room temperature for a couple hours, and the heat from the peppers and tomatoes makes the shrimp and rice come alive.
“Shrimp with Black Bean Sauce” is usually served with rice, but since I’m such a fan of the dish, I included it here as a reminder that a good way to add heat to any dish that includes shrimp is to cook them in the microwave.
The chilis have been phased out in favor of a new chili that includes chilis and black beans. I’m not sure which one was the original chili, but I know that the new one is still tasty. These spicy black beans are a great way to use up some leftover cooked chilis, but they also add heat to the dish. They are usually served with rice.
My favorite part of this new recipe is the addition of chilis—which is good for you, but kind of hard to make when you’re stuck on a time loop and you don’t know if the microwave is going to come within a half hour of your next meal.
I’m not sure how old this shrimp recipe is, but I’d guess that it probably dates back to the days of the Great Chili War. Back then, one of the main issues with chili was that it was too spicy. The solution was to cook the chili longer and add more chili powder. This resulted in a dish that was both spicy and healthy.
I have to admit this shrimp dish has actually been one of my favorite meals for the past few weeks. I also have to admit the chilis were good. I don’t know why I didn’t make this chilis with just a little bit of cream cheese, but I’m glad I did. It’s a very versatile dish that works well as a side dish or as a vegetable.
The shrimp with black bean sauce is just one of those dishes that I like to make with just a couple of ingredients. A dash of cream cheese and some chopped up onions is great for a quick and easy appetizer, and a big pile of cooked shrimp will work well as a main course. It’s a dish that can be made in a flash, too.
If you have the time, I recommend making it as a side dish. It’s flavorful and delicious, and the shrimp adds a nice touch. If you’re not up for making it in a flash, you can just use a can or jar of black beans.
