What could be quicker than combining cooked beans with your favorite salsa or picante sauce? No need to chop jalapeno peppers to increase the heat-just choose a hot salsa to begin with. This is sure to become a favorite to whip up when unexpected company comes. If you keep already cooked beans-frozen in 1- or 2-cup portions as we strongly recommend, you’ll always be ready to make this or most other bean recipes.
