We like to makes tons of things with beans. I think black bean salsa is our fave right now, but come Fall we'll be using them for soups!

Honestly, beans are probably one of my favorite foods! I remember we were really poor growing up. My mom would have canned beans in the cupboards though, and I would always eat a can of beans for lunch. Green beans, black beans, pinto beans. Whatever was available lol. I probably would have eaten them if we weren't so poor too :)
