Fancy Beans

This is a recipe I originally 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!

  • 1 green bell pepper, chopped
  • 1, 14.5 oz. can of diced 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. Season with salt and pepper.
  4. Cook for 3 minutes.
