Southwest Black Beans
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cooking Time: 10 minutes
These are so quick and simple to make. Using fresh salsa from the refrigerator section of the market is lower sodium than salsa in a jar, and adds so much flavor with little effort. This is a healthy side dish full of protein and fiber. Check the salsa for a gluten-free one.
2 cans (15 ounces each) black beans, reduced sodium
1 cup salsa, fresh, low sodium, refrigerator section, gluten free
2 tablespoons cilantro, fresh
Lightly rinse and drain the black beans in a colander. Place a medium sauce pan over medium heat. Add the beans and the salsa to the pan and stir. Cook over medium low heat for about 15 minutes until flavors combine and beans are slightly softened. Garnish with cilantro.
