Using canned food for convenience while cooking.

Canned foods can be so helpful when it comes to cooking. I use them whenever I can to help save time while cooking. TwitterMoms offered a chance to learn more and blog in conjunction with The Canned Food Alliance, I learned so many things about canned food.

I learned:
Beans go through a seven step cleansing process.
Beans can be used straight from the can.
The darker the bean, the more oxidants.
Cans are reusable for life

My favorite recipe using canned foods:
Refried Bean Dip:
2 cans of refried beans
1 can of Black Olives (precut)
1 cup of salsa
1 cup of shredded cheese.
Open the cans of refried beans and scoop into a bowl. Microwave for 20 seconds to soften it up. Open the jar of salsa and measure out a cup of salsa and add to bowl. Mix them together until throughly mixed. Open can of black olives and cut up into small pieces if you don't have the precut) Mix in the black olives. Sprinkle cheese on top to liking.
Thats it! This dip is perfect with tortilla chips!
