This dish is packed with flavors, easy to make and done in under 30 minutes. The perfect dish for a busy weeknight dinner, yet it´s bold enough for an elegant weekend dish.
To make this recipe, I used jarred Spanish Kidney Beans, which is the same thing as the canned ones. Buy you can use any other type of beans here. Such as white beans, garbanzo beans or even black beans.
What really flavors this very simple yet bold dish, is the spices & herbs. I used a combination of Spanish paprika, ground cumin and dried oregano. I also added a splash of Sherry vinegar for a pop of Spanish goodness.
