 The "quick" in the recipe title assumes that you have leftover, cooked rice on 
 hand.  I made this last night when I was in the mood for red beans and rice, 
 but didn't have much time.
 Quick Kidney Beans with Rice
 3/4 c. chopped onion 
 2 cloves garlic, minced
 1 10 oz. can diced Rotel tomatoes
 1 15 oz. can kidney beans, drained and rinsed
 2 T. salsa
 3 T. chopped cilantro
 1/2 t. oregano
 about 1/4 c. apple juice
 Saute the onion and garlic in vegetable stock or water until softened.  Add 
 Rotel tomatoes, kidney beans, and salsa.  Cook 5-10 minutes or until heated 
 through.  Add cilantro and oregano, and simmer covered for 5 minutes.  Remove 
 cover, add apple juice, and let cook uncovered 2-3 minutes.  Serve over hot 
 Notes:  If Rotel tomatoes (diced tomatoes with chilies) aren't available in 
 your area, you could use regular canned, diced tomatoes and extra salsa.  Use 
 your favorite salsa; I used green tomatillo salsa.  I added the apple juice at 
 the end because the beans seemed a little dry.  There isn't a lot of liquid in 
 the final dish--if you'd like more liquid, you could probably add more 
 tomatoes or tomato juice.
