Ingredients

  • 2 (15-oz.) cans red kidney beans, drained and rinsed
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 medium-size yellow onion, chopped
  • 1 red bell pepper, chopped
  • 2 jalapeño chiles, seeds removed, chopped

    1. Mash 1/2 cup of the red kidney beans, and set aside with the remaining whole kidney beans.
