I agree, I really like this recipe!  I added some Boca crumbles for extra protein.  I usually have rice, beans, veggies, and soy protein for dinner, but this combines everything into an easy, scoopable package!  ;)


i have to admit i thought this recipe would be a little bland at first glance.  however, it didn't require a trip to the store so i went for it.  my first impressions were totally off.  if you use a spicy salsa and good fresh veggies this is GREAT.  i also tried adding about three tablespoons of soymilk and some nutritional yeast to the mashed beans for texture and flavor.  it's also nice because it keeps for a while, i am one person and this was tupperware lunch for a week after dinner
