BBQ Baked Beans

BBQ Baked Beans

I have used this recipe for baked beans every summer for the last several years.  Okay, not this *exact* recipe; the previous one included meat.  We’ve now had this vegetarian version twice and, as always, it’s delicious! 2 (15 oz.) cans baked beans 1/2c brown […]

Black Bean Chili

Black Bean Chili

I don’t know why I’ve waited so long to write a post about this chili.  I’ve been serving it for years, usually over couscous or rice, and everyone loves it!  Last night though, I served the chili by itself and it was just as satisfying […]

The first day of 2014 and I’m bringing back this recipe from last New Year’s.  So good, we’re having it again for dinner tonight! ******** It is well known and understood in this house that everyone is required to eat the black-eyed peas and cabbage served on […]

Tuscan Bean Pasta

White Chili

White Chili

It’s a snowy Spring day here and I am planning to serve leftovers fantastic chili/soup for dinner.  I say, “chili/soup” because you can control the consistency.  We like it more soupy, so I simmer it with a lid.  If you prefer something thicker, leave the lid […]

Lentil Curry

Easy Bean and Cheese Taquitos

Easy Bean and Cheese Taquitos

I like to serve these as an appetizer or side to a Mexican dinner, but really, I would be totally happy just eating them all by themselves!  Dip them in some salsa or guacamole….good stuff! 1 can black beans, drained and rinsed 1 can refried […]

Hot Bean Dip
