I loved these beans!!! We frequently have beans as a side, but this is a great easy way to jazz them up. The best part is that the ingredients are things that I usually have on hand.

This was very good but next time I would add more salsa.

quick and good. I suggest really to mince the onion and use a spicy, thick, chunky salsa and if you like it extra spicy use some pepper sauce.
