i have a bunch of canned beans & dont know what to do with them?
So i get WIC and they give me a bunch of canned beans (with no flavors. Literally just a plain can of beans) and i dont know what to do with them. I've never cooked beans before..meaning adding the spices, etc. Do you have any good recipe ideas? I would hate to see those go to waste.

I'd say you could probably find some great recipes for chili. Uses beans and isn't very hard to make.

For green beans, finely slice and saute some onion in butter. Drain the beans and add them to the onions. Cook and stir over medium heat 'til heated through and serve 'em up.

It would have been nice to know what type of beans they were, but most types could go in a soup or stew, though some are nice just rinsed and eaten in a salad.

You can drain them & mix with a vinaigrette dressing for bean salad. Or cook with ground beef or turkey, to make a chili. Add chopped onion & diced peppers, while browning meat in hot oil. Use chili powder or cumin for the spices. Add a can of tomatoes or tomato sauce.
