Fancy Beans

This is a recipe I got from the back of a can of Bush’s Beans.  I have changed it a bit over the years.  It is an excellent side dish that I usually serve with white rice and store bought Rotisserie chickens for a quick, healthy dinner!

Fancy Beans


  • 2, 15 oz cans of Bush’s black beans, drain and reserve juices
  • 1 tbsp. of olive oil
  • 3/4 cup of onion, chopped
  • 1 green bell pepper, chopped
  • 1, 14.5 oz. can of dice tomatoes
  • 1/2 tsp. of ground thyme
  • 1 tbsp. of apple cider vinegar
  • 1 squirt or more of Sriracha-depending on how spicy you like it(My family only likes the Trader Joe’s brand)


  1. In a large skillet, heat the olive oil.
  2. Saute the onion and green pepper until tender.
  3. Stir in the diced tomatoes, beans and thyme.
  4. Cook for 3 minutes.
  5. Add the vinegar, sriracha, and reserved juices from the beans.
  6. Cook for 5 more minutes.
  7. Serve over rice(I usually serve this with Minute Premium White Rice.  It literally cooks in 5 minutes!)
