Tip 1: Cover and refrigerate any remaining black beans. Add to salads, soup, tacos or casseroles.
Tip 2: Add carrot and celery sticks and a cluster of grapes to round out the meal.
Tip 3: Did you know that rinsing and draining canned beans removes some of the sodium and excess starch? Simply open a can of beans, and pour contents into a colander. Rinse with cold water until liquid runs clear. Shake colander to remove excess water.
