Recipe by Dienia B.
Libbie's recipe has pickle relish, sour cream, ketchup. Rudy says these are the big white lima beans. I think you could use canned butter beans to cut down cooking time. holy cow these are good i made a pot of dried limas and then did 4 different dishes and this was amazing wowser
