Expert Tips

Keep with the Southwest-flavor theme by serving this meatless skillet meal with warmed tortillas or tortilla chips and sliced avocados and tomatoes.

For a heartier, meatier meal, you can add cooked ground beef or turkey with the beans.

Chili beans give a boost of flavor to this recipe, so be sure not to drain. The canned pinto beans are in a sauce of tomato paste, chili powder and other spices.
