When you're short on time but want a side with lots of flavor, stir up a pot of Spicy Black Beans. Canned black beans get their heat from a minced jalapeno pepper and lime juice.

How to Make It

Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add canola oil to pan; swirl to coat. Add bell pepper and minced jalapeño pepper; sauté 4 minutes. Add fresh lime juice, salt, and black beans. Cook 3 minutes or until thoroughly heated. Sprinkle with chopped fresh cilantro.
