Recipe by mandabears

This is an excellent side dish, especially with grilled chicken. I don't remember where I got the recipe, but it has been an almost weekly standard at my house.

This tasted okay, but the salsa overpowered the dish. My husband and I took one bite and said it was passable, but neither of us ate anymore of it and that's unusual for him. I will make this again, but with less beans and I'll leave the salsa out.
