Easy to make/tastes great

I used the instant beans and it turned out great! Everyone at the party loved it.

Great recipe!

Healthy, hearty and tastes great! Even my picky eaters loved it!

Awesome recipe!

Easy to make & easy to change ingredients. Make sure you rinse your beans or the whole thing looks muddy. Made with canned beans once but making your own is better if you have the time!

Great for parties

I made this for a company party and everyone loved it. No one had any idea I made it from my food storage until I mentioned it. Great combination
