Save time by using 2 cans (15 oz. each) black beans, rinsed and drained, and 2 cans (15 oz. each) Great Northern beans, rinsed and drained, in place of the dry black beans, dry Great Northern beans and salt. When using canned beans, omit step 1 in the directions. Although higher in sodium, canned beans save time and provide plentiful fiber and protein.
