I wanted a side dish to go with my Veracruz Fish Tacos and the marriage [casamiento] of black beans and rice seems a natural. In reading about the cuisine of Veracruz black beans are a must.
Veracruz being as first port of call on the east coast of Mexico had more contact with Europe than other parts of the Mexican interior. The joining together of the Old World rice with the New World beans is almost symbolic of Veracruz’s historic position as the place where European, black slave and indigenous native cultures combined to form something new.
