Canned beans are a fast and easy way to create favorite bean dishes, but letting them cook a little bit is the secret to a great-tasting dish, according to Cook’s Illustrated Encyclopedia.
Stir the beans into sautéed aromatic ingredients like onions and garlic along with whatever spices and herbs you are using. Instead of just heating them up, let them cook for 30 minutes. Allowing beans time to soak up the flavors of other ingredients gives them a homemade flavor.
