Love this idea!  The only things I did differently were using white navy beans instead of kidney beans and adding mushrooms.


This is great, so perfect for a hot summer day!  I added a fresh minced jalapeño to mine and used fresh minced garlic instead of the juice.  It was awesome as a meal with some stove-top skillet cornbread.  Really good topped with avocado and vegan sour cream.  Yum!!
