Red Beans and Onions

This is an easy side dish that my whole family loves. My youngest son will often eat any leftovers we have by themselves the next day for lunch.


2 cans kidney beans, rinsed

1 bunch green onions

1 onion

3 cloves garlic

1/4 cup chicken broth

1/2 tsp. salt

1/2 tsp. garlic powder

1/2 tsp. chili powder

1/4 tsp. pepper

2 tbsp. olive oil


  1. Chop the onion, green onion, and garlic.

2. Add the olive oil to a skillet and heat over medium heat.

3. Place the chopped onion in the skillet and cook for about 5 minutes, until soft.

4. Add the garlic to the skillet and cook for another 2-3 minutes.

5. Add the, green onion,  kidney beans and broth to the skillet. Reduce heat to low.

6. Stir in the spices and simmer for around 5 minutes, until half the broth cooks off and everything is heated through.

This dish is a great complement to any type of chicken or pork and also goes great with tacos. Thanks for stopping by! See you next week.
