Dinner Tonight, Lunch Tomorrow: Black Bean Recipes

Ray Kachatorian

The weather may still be cold, but our beef chili recipe is hearty enough to warm you right up. This is the ideal dish for a casual get-together, as everyone can customize their servings by adding their own choice of toppings. Dark chocolate gives the chili depth and balances the spicy seasonings. Try it for dinner and serve with warm corn tortillas or corn muffins.

Then, for lunch tomorrow, mix leftover black beans with rice to whip up some quick burritos. Turkey sausage and reduced-sodium taco seasoning give this dish a healthier spin. Kids can help by measuring the ingredients and sprinkling on cheese. Oh, and did we mention that this who recipe takes only 30 minutes, from start to finish? Delicious and easy!
