Mexican Chilly Beans

Kidney beans are one of the world’s healthiest foods! They are extremely high in cholesterol lowering fiber (like most beans), PLUS their high fiber content ensures that blood sugar levels don’t rise too quickly! Kidney beans also contain vitamin K which aids in healthy brain and nervous system functions. Grace's food journal:
