Add the kidney beans, Mesa de Vida recipe starter sauce, raisins, olives, salt, and water to a saucepan over medium heat. Bring to a simmer, cover and cook on low for 20 minutes.
Remove the lid, and mash the beans with the back of a fork, or a potato masher until the beans are mashed, but not completely smooth. Leave a little texture in there!
If the bean mixture has too much liquid for your tastes, simply leave the lid off and continue to cook until thickened to your liking; if the bean mixture is too thick, stir in a bit more water.
Serve over rice or potatoes and enjoy!
