Any suggestions on simple recipes that don't use too many fresh foods or
require more than a minimal kitchen?

Here's a really simple one:

Easy Beans and Rice

1 onion, diced
1 can kidney beans, rinsed and drained
1/4 cup (approx.) salsa and/or: ketchup, diced tomato, tomato paste and water 
1 cup cooked rice (leftovers, or instant)
1 can corn, drained
1-4 cloves garlic, minced, or garlic powder
1 TBS (or more) chili powder
1/2 TBS ground cumin (optional)
1/4 tsp prepared mustard (optional)
1 green, red, or yellow bell pepper, diced (optional)
2-4 black olives, diced (optional)
a little water, if needed

salt & pepper

low fat/ff sour cream, for garnish (optional)

Mix all ingredients except rice and sour cream in a frying pan, and cook  
briefly on medium heat until all ingredients are warmed through. Add cooked  
rice and cook for a few minutes to blend flavors. Garnish with sour cream  

Good luck -- I hope you have fun!!
