10-minute Black Beans

This quick and easy bean recipe can eaten as a side dish, or can be turned into a quick dinner by wrapping the beans in a tortilla and serving as a bean burrito.  Add a dollop of sour cream or grated Monterey jack or cheddar cheese on top or in the burrito for extra flavor. Use canned black beans to save time.
