I'm am all for quick and simple dinner ideas that taste good.
This recipe hits the mark with all three; it can be prepared in under 30 minutes, it's easy to make, and it tastes delicious. Plus, it's meat-free and the ingredients are inexpensive and probably what you already have in your kitchen.
My kids really liked these bean topped potatoes. The potato toppings have a Mexican food undertone with the cumin and cilantro but you can add a dash or two of hot sauce to spice it up as the current recipe doesn't have much heat. Enjoy!
