Done in 20 minutes on the stovetop; I like to serve this with my Low Carb Mexi Baked Chicken for a complete and festive low carb dinner. Also a tasty, easy side dish to serve with your tacos, fajitas, etc.

Great stuff! I used canned pinto beans because we have a ton of those. Surprisingly good and wayyyyy easy! Thanks~

Very flavorful & Yummy Beans! Fixed this while on South Beach but whole family loved them. Had to fix another pot for me to take for leftovers in lunch! Thank you!
