Many of you know that I have been a part of Team Bean with Bush Beans for several years now. It is such a great thing to be involved with.
Well for this year, I have been challenged to create some recipes that include 10 ingredients or less with one ingredient being a can of their beans. This includes – kidney beans, black beans, garbanzo beans, great northern beans, pinto beans, cannellini beans, and chili beans.
The fun thing with the Bush’s chili beans is they have expanded the varieties that are now available. Previously there was chili beans using red or pinto beans. Now there are chili beans using black beans, kidney beans, or great northern beans.
I love using chili beans in recipes because there are in prepared with a tasty sauce that just adds flavor to whatever recipe you are making. I have a recipe coming up next month for you using the chili beans.
Today is the first of 5 recipes that I will be sharing with you during the remainder of the year. This recipe today uses good old black beans. Black beans are probably my top pick when it comes to beans and is usually highest in fiber. So it is a good way to sneak in something good for my family.
Mexican dishes are always a hit so I came up with there creamy chicken and black bean taquitos. These get baked though instead of frying in oil. They were gobbled down by my family in no time.
