Dijon bacon + beans

I make a huge pot of dried beans every week to eat in my lunches and dinners. Endless possibilities, but sometimes I get in a rut and just eat the beans straight along with corn tortillas (another staple for me). Today, since I’m off from work, I stepped up my game a little…

Dijon bacon + beans

20130731-123155.jpg

  • 1/2 cup cooked pinto beans (I used cooked dried ones but canned are fine)
  • 2 handfuls of baby spinach
  • 2 tbsp of crumbled or chopped bacon (probably equivalent of 1 strip)
  • Dijon mustard
  • 2 corn tortillas (optional)
  1. Microwave or heat in a pan: beans, spinach and bacon.
  2. Add in a squirt of Dijon and heat again til warm. Stir it all together.
  3. Serve with corn tortillas on the side!

Super, super easy and tasty. Another great idea would be to add a little brown sugar or maple syrup to make these more “baked beans” flavor. The bacon I used was already crumbled so it had a little brown sugar in it. And while I am an advocate of bacon in everything, it can easily be left out if you don’t eat or like bacon!
