Nacho Beans

Low in saturated fat, high in protein for repair + fiber which keeps you regular and delays glucose absorption.  What I love about this recipe is that it’s budget friendly.  The mix freezes well too, so I often make a large batch and throw any leftovers in the freezer for another day. We just as it is in bowls or from the pan with a big spoon and side salad  or accompanied with organic gluten free corn and flaxseed tortillas and avocado.
