Spanish Beans

These are great on white rice.  When we cook spanish chicken or pork chops we like having rice and beans as the side.  This is very filling and economically cost efficient.  The spanish flavors are amazing.


1 can of pinto beans with juice (Goya is preferred)

1 8 oz can of tomato sauce

1 tsp garlic powder                 IMG_1510
