I’m going on another year as a brand ambassador with the team from Bush’s Beans. We have always really loved Bush’s Beans around here, but I always felt a bit limited in how I used them. I had in my mind that certain beans go with certain foods, and I never thought to switch things up some.
Once I started working with Bush’s Beans I was introduced to how versatile their beans can be. Black beans don’t only have to be for your favorite Mexican dish. White Northern Beans aren’t just for White Chicken Chili. There are so many ways to use beans in dishes you might not have thought to use them in otherwise.
One great example is this Steak and Bean Fajita recipe I adapted from the Bush’s Beans recipe database. I never in a million years would have thought to add Pinto Beans to fajitas! You can bet, after trying this recipe, we will never have fajitas without beans again.
What are some of your favorite ways to use beans in recipes? I’m looking to be inspired!
As a lifelong fan of Bush’s Beans, I am proud to be a brand ambassador for them. All opinions expressed are my own.
