    GibbyLou's Note:

    I served this as an appetizer for a book club discussion about Enrique's Journey by Sonia Nazario. It could serve 2-4 as a main course. It is from Cooking Light June 2001. I use a 15oz can of black beans, drained and rinsed. Then in step 2 just heat until simmering, no need to wait for it to thicken. It's also not necessary to crumble the goat cheese.

      Easy, and very tasty! Garnished with sour cream, salsa, and cilantro. Served with roasted sweet potato slices. Will add sliced avocado next time! Made for Spring PAC 2014.

      Absolutely wonderful!! I used dried black beans soaked/cooked to cut down on the sodium. And I used a medium fire roasted salsa. I will definately been making this again. It is quick and easy dinner full of great flavours. I served it with some lightly steamed spinach. That you GibbyLou for sharing this great recipe!
