Low Sodium Adobe Sweet Navy Beans Fry

Updated on August 5, 2012

We make dinner for my grandparents Monday through Friday - in effect, we are the meals on wheels in our family.

Both grandparents require low sodium accommodations. I used an adobe seasoning that had about 300mg of sodium for the 1/2 tsp. used in the dish.

This Navy Bean recipe comes from a "What the heck am I going to do with all these Navy Beans I cooked?" moment. If you have ever cooked a huge batch of dry beans thinking you were going to easily use them, you probably understand this.

This dish serves 5-6 as a main dish and up to 8-10 as a side dish. I recommend serving it with chicken on the side and a green salad.

Is It Any Good?

Cook Time

Prep time: 20 min
Cook time: 15 min
Ready in: 35 min
Yields: 5-6 Servings for Main Dish, 8-10 as a Side Dish.


  • 1 Red Pepper, Chopped or Miniced
  • 3 Cups Navy Beans, Cooked (best from raw but canned should work)
  • 1 Ear of Corn, Cut Off the Cobb
  • 1 Celery Stick, Thin Cut
  • 5 Mushrooms, Chopped
  • 2 Green Onions, Chopped
  • 1/2 tsp. Adobe Seasoning, Find a low sodium one
  • 1tsp Mrs. Dash

Putting Everything Together!

  1. Spray a large skillet with non-stick spray.
  2. Add red peppers, corn, celery, and mushrooms and cook on medium high for about two minutes.
  3. Add beans and stir.
  4. Mix adobe and Mrs. Dash seasonings together in a bowl or in the palm of your hand and then sprinkle evenly throughout the skillet.
  5. Stir skillet and heat for about another five minutes, stirring often. If you use canned beans, you may need to stir more gently to prevent creating "mashed beans".
  6. Once cooked to your satisfaction, take skillet off heat, stir in green onions, cover, and let sit for a few minutes before serving.
