  • 1 cup Progresso™ black beans (from 15-oz can), drained, rinsed
  • 1/2 teaspoon grated lime peel
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/4 bell pepper, cut into 2x1/4-inch strips

  • Cilantro leaves, if desired

  • 2
    Meanwhile, in 2-quart saucepan, heat tomatoes to boiling. Stir in pasta, beans, lime peel, cumin and bell pepper. Reduce heat to low; cover and cook 2 to 3 minutes, stirring occasionally, until hot. Garnish with sour cream, lime and cilantro. Squeeze lime over pasta.

  • Black beans are loaded with fiber—the soluble kind that helps to lower blood cholesterol. Start slowly so you have time to get used to more fiber.
  • Diced tomatoes with chili spices or garlic and onions can be substituted for the tomatoes with green chilies.
