20+ Cheap and Easy Recipes to Use Canned Beans




What better way to start off the new year than to share some budget friendly recipes, especially if one of your resolutions is to save more money!

Today's recipe collection is inspired by National Bean Day which is January 6th!

I love using beans in many of my recipes because they are cheap, healthy and so easy to add to almost any meal.

Beans are a great source of protein, dietary fiber, vitamins and minerals.

Some even say they can reduce blood sugar, improve cholesterol and help maintain a healthy digestive system.

Sign me up! More incentive to give these recipes a try and incorporate more beans into your diet!
