Thanks, I hope you like it.  It is also good with black beans, pinto beans – or you could try your favorite bean –whatever that is. 

I have always been a black bean type person.  At the time I wrote the recipe, I was experimenting with several types of beans – but later found that the variety didn’t agree with me.  So, I have gone back to using black beans more in my cooking lately.


sounds easy & de-lish. Gonna have to try this one.
