5-Minute Lunch – literally

Okay, so this really is a five-minute lunch.  And it's not box macaroni. It is healthy, it is tasty, and I thoroughly enjoyed eating it. Oh – and I made it up!


  • 1 can of beans (pinto, black, kidney, etc.), or alternately you could soak and cook two cups of dried beans
  • Around 1/2 teaspoon (to taste) of the following spices: dried cilantro, chile powder, paprika, cumin, garlic powder, salt, pepper ((really, you can season it how you like, this was just what we did)
  • About 1 Tablespoon olive oil
  • Tortilla chips
  • Optional greens, tomatoes, peppers, onions, etc.
Drain the beans and rinse them. In a bowl, combine beans and spices. Heat oil in a frying pan and add in beans. Fry (stirring them so as not to let them stick to the pan) for five minutes, adding more oil if needed. Divide between bowls and enjoy with chips! Although we didn't add anything else, you could eat it with spinach or tomatoes, or fry some peppers or onions with the beans, which I'm sure would be delicious.
Serves two.

It really is that easy to make lunch.
