10 Things You Can Make With a Can of Black Beans

Hearty Chili with Black Beans

Chili is a warm, appetizing meal, and it's especially enjoyable on a cold day. Forgo the slow cooker and make hearty chili with black beans quickly in a saucepan instead. Seasoned ground beef, onions and chopped bell peppers may sound like the makings of a great chili recipe, but adding a can of black beans and a single sweet ingredient -- cinnamon -- make this chili dish stand out from all the rest.
