hi.

I'm Leila. I love to make food. My recipes are fresh & simple but only because I'm lazy.

 

Fast & Furious Pinto Beans

Fast & Furious Pinto Beans

Beans from a can? Bad girl! 

Yeah, yeah whatever.. If you're in a rush or just plain lazy (like me) this pinto bean recipe will add something extra to taco night or as a side for grilled chicken. 

Fast & Furious Pinto Beans

Serves 4

  • 2 T. Unsalted Butter or Olive oil
  • 1 tsp. Cumin
  • 1 tsp. Chili Powder
  • 1 tsp Garlic Powder
  • 1/2 White Onion
  • 4 Cloves Fresh Garlic, Minced
  • 1 lb. 13 oz. Can Pinto Beans
  • Salt? Note- Canned beans are generally salty. Taste first.

In a medium sized pot, on medium heat, saute onion in butter, add garlic and dry spices until it looks like candy. Stirring often, careful not to burn. Add beans and cilantro. Give it a stir and simmer for five minutes. Boom, done!
