Mixed Bean Picadillo - Love Canned Food

When it’s cold outside, there’s nothing you crave more than a hearty, warming meal to satisfy your taste buds. Now the clocks have gone back and the evenings are getting darker, we long for heart-warming recipes that are delicious, convenient and quick to make.

Cooking with canned food provides endless convenience! That’s because canned food is pre-prepared, meaning that there’s no need to chop and peel your vegetables. In addition to being convenient, cooking with canned food also saves you time in the kitchen. Canned food is precooked before being packaged, meaning that it’s ready to cook when you are, ensuring quick and easy meals for you any night of the week.

Check out the below recipes and let us know which are your favourite over on our Instagram channel @lovecannedfood.
