“At a loss about what to make for dinner or as a snack, and you don't want to go to the store? This is super quick and delicious, and you can eat it as a meal or a bean dip. This is a great way to use up the bottoms of all the tortilla chip bags. If you don't have taco seasoning mix, there are lots of recipes on zaar to make your own. I didn't have enough pinto beans so I also used butter beans, great northern beans, and red beans. Recipe courtesy of Richard Mann/The Bean”
