Most well-stocked pantries are equipped with a can or two of white beans, one of those versatile ingredients that can quickly be cooked into a meal.

White beans are weeknight dinner saviors, no doubt. For one, they're already cooked. Two, they've got a nice serving of protein. Three, they're cheap. And, in our humble opinion, they make almost any meal taste better.

Chillies, stews, dips, burgers -- even quesadillas -- can all be made with the unassuming white bean. Check it out for yourself below.
