    Kittencalskitchen's Note:

    If you prefer spicy then add in a finely chopped jalapeno pepper. The chili powder can be increased or decreased to suit taste.Also you can add in some navy beans with the kidney beans. This is a very simple but good bean recipe.

      I used 1 can of petite tomotoes and 1 can of Rotel. It gives it a little more kick but not super spicy. Reheats well... tastes better the second day so I make on the weekend for lunches the next week.

      This is a SIMPLE HEARTY VEGETARIAN SATISFYING casserole! I followed the recipe but used diced tomatoes and added 1 cup of whole black olives and 1 can of diced mild green chiles. I think cumin would be good in this too. YUMMY with sour cream. Made for 1-2-3 hit wonders.

      Mmmmm...yummy! This quick bean dish packs a lot of Tex Mex flavor. We really loved the layering of the beans and cheese. I used a can of kidney and a can of black beans (all I had) and lowfat Cabot Cheddar cheese. I also added 1 1/2 tsp canned jalepeno for a little heat and it was perfect! Thanks Kitten!
