Beans and Greens

Fast and easy, beans and greens can be a mash-up of many different things. My usual list of suspects includes sweet bells, sweet onion, garlic, and kale with pintos or kidney beans. This perfectly simple meal begins with two hot pans and some chopped veggies. While the tortilla pan is …
