Author Notes: I realize that this recipe calls for CANNED beans and my mother would not approve but this dish is great for a busy cook who wants something that is quick, healthy and delicious! you can always make it with dried beans but part of the allure of this dish is that is so quick. Great with rice and yogurt! Goldilocks
