This is a nutrient-dense dish that’s mildly spicy. Easy to make, it’s a meal in itself and pairs well with grilled chicken. (Add some fire to that chicken with Weber’s Kick’n Chicken seasoning.) Plus you can serve it up as a burrito.


Cook the beans first, then chill a bit before adding the vegetables, spices and liquids.

Spices (suit to taste) #

Optional garnishes: #

Cook the beans #

Note: I like firm beans. You may need to cook them longer to suit your preference.

Drain and cool the beans in the fridge for a bit. This helps prevent the onions and bell pepper from getting mushy when you add them.

Then toss in the vegetables and other ingredients. Season to suit your taste.
