I have a recipe for mini meatloaves that uses a can of red Kidney beans, I also have a recipe for a Black Bean Meatless Lasagna and you don't have to pre-cook the noodles.

I just made a killer pot of chicken chili tonight that uses 2 cans of black beans and 1 can of Kidney beans.

You can also make White Chicken Chili and use the great northern beans, or white beans.

There are lots of things you can do with them!

There's also Corn & Black Bean Salsa - Yummy!

My favorite Chili Soup recipe, I always get raves when I bring it places. According to the friend that gave it to me many years ago it is 3 WW points.

1 1/2 lbs lean ground beef or ground turkey (I use about 1 lb) browned
diced onion to taste
diced celery to taste (I leave that out because I never have any)
1 can rotel tomatoes (I just used seasoned ones)
2 cans stewed tomatoes
1 1/2 cup water
1 can black beans
1 can pinto beans
1 can red kidney beans
1 can corn
1 pkg taco seasoning
1 pkg ranch dressing

Brown hamburger, throw everything together into a crockpot, cook for however long you have. Freezes well.

I made the black beans & rice from Our Best Bites and loved it! There are probably several bean recipes there, as well.

i saw in good housekeeping magazine that you can take a can of rinsed and drained black beans, puree them in a food processor and use them to replace the fat in boxed brownie mixes. I haven't actually tried this. Has anyone else?

Yes, and it is really good! In fact, I was just thinking the other day that I need to get back to doing that when I back because I liked it so well. I found the texture to be much better than when I have subbed applesauce for the fat.
