No Time for Dinner?

Healthy Pinto Beans & Franks is a perfect time saving meal that you can have ready in under 10 minutes. Feel free to change or add an ingredient. You can even change it to kidney beans, black beans or any combination you desire. Use your favorite cheese. I used Oscar Mayer Light Beef Franks because I like the taste and texture. If you want to be super healthy or are watching your sodium, rinse the beans before preparing.



1 can pinto beans - drained & rinsed (15.5 oz can)
1 medium onion, chopped
1 teaspoon canola oil
2 tablespoons medium salsa
2 beef hot dogs, sliced
2 tablespoons mozzarella cheese
salt/pepper to taste

Heat oil in skillet over medium heat and add chopped onion. Cook approximately 2-3 minutes and add hot dogs. Cook approximately 2 minutes until heated thru. Add beans and salsa. Continue cooking another 2 minutes or until mixture is hot. Add salt and peppar to taste if desired. Remove from heat, top with cheese and serve. This will make 2 good sized servings.
