This is a quick recipe for busy nights. I used an old recipe from my favorite cookbook, but after talking to a very good friend of mine who is a great cook herself we made some changes. Give this a try. All of the ingredients can be kept on hand. I use Ranch beans and don't drain the juice, so if you can find them-please use the Ranch.

Fixed this recipe last night and it was really good. I love that it was so quick and easy. Made exactly as directed and I must admit I was kind of concerned that it would be too much cumin, but it wasn't. Thanks for the great recipe.
