Default Pinto beans with greens

This looks like a pretty simple side dish. It comes from whfoods.org.

Pinto Beans with Greens

Ingredients:

* 1˝lbs kale or collard greens
* 2 TBS lemon juice
* 1 TBS olive oil

As a recent "convert" to the pinto bean and training my taste buds for greens, now that I live in the South, I will definitely try this one!!

Thanks, Nelie

This looks like a version of one I found in a Cooking Light cookbook, which is apparently a version of a traditional Mexican dish. I toss in some cayenne pepper and serve with a bit of cornbread, it is fantastic! I also tried it once with black beans, worked very well (though the pintos def. are the best here).
