Why I Love This Recipe

Perfect as a side to any Tex-Mex dish. Very filling and so much lighter than the restaurant version (or the canned made with lard). High protien, high fiber.

Ingredients You'll Need

2/3 C fined chopped onion
4 t canola oil
4 minced garlic cloves
1 t ground cumin (I like more)
1/2 t salt
1/4 cayenne pepper
2 15 oz cans pinto beans, rinsed and drained
1/2 C water
4 t lime juice


In a large saucepan, saute onion in oil until tender. Stir in the garlic, cumin, salt and cayenne. Cook and stir for 1 minute. Add beans and mash (potato masher works well). Add water, cook and stir until beans are heated through and water is absorbed. Remove from heat, stir in lime juice...
