Quick Skillet Beans With Tomatoes



  1. Put the oil in a skillet over medium-high heat.
  2. When hot, add the onion and garlic and cook, stirring occasionally, until the onion begins to soften, 3 to 5 minutes.
  3. Add the tomatoes and adjust the heat so the mixture bubbles.
  4. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the tomatoes begin to break apart and look saucy, 10 to 15 minutes.
  5. Add water, 2 tablespoons at a time, if the tomatoes ever look too dry.
  6. Stir in the beans and sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  7. Cook until they are tender and hot all the way through, 5 to 7 minutes.
  8. Taste and adjust the seasoning with salt or pepper, sprinkle with the oregano, and serve.
