This side dish cooks up in just 10 minutes; a little chili powder gives the beans a spicy kick.

I am always looking for whole food recipes to pin and share and try with my 90/10 Nutrition Challenge Groups ( and this is one that worked perfectly. Great recipe. I had it with the Chicken Posole recipe and have used it with other stuff since. Thanks!

I found that Cumin was better than Chili powder, and I threw in some cilantro. Easy!

This simple recipe is my favorite on the entire site. It's a staple in my house in the summer, you can add chicken to it, or cooked shrimp. Delicious!

This is a great and easy side. The lime and green onions add just a little something extra that makes the beans better.

An absolute favorite for me as a side dish with anything grilled. Really simple and easy to prepare using simple ingredients, but so delicious! Also great with some grilled shrimp tossed in. I top it off with low-fat sour cream.
