Do you use beans in your recipes often?

I just made chili using the red kidney beans. I don't usually make chili but it was a good way to use ground beef. I can make chili dogs with hot dogs and chili together. How about you?

  • I cook with beans all the time! I love them, they are great for you and they are inexpensive. I use them in casseroles, soups, salads and lots of things. Red or black beans and rice are two of my favorite dishes!

  • I do use beans. I mash up beans for taco or burrito fillings, make a tasty beans & rice dish with tomatoes, green chilies, and cheese, add black beans to my tossed salad, make a black & white bean/vegetable salad to eat as a cool main dish salad, mash white beans and add to tuna salad, make bean soup, baked beans, and so many more!

  • i make beans all the time... in fact sometimes i use beans as a meat substitute (I try and have one vegetarian dinner a week), can be used in place of meat for tacos, sloppy joes, in chili, etc...

  • I use beans in my chili, escarole and beans (cannellini beans, my fav), we love refried beans, and the fat free kind is delicious..., also I love hummus.
