This was easy, filling, and tasted good. I omitted the bacon (counting fat and calories!) I did not put the rice into the mix, just served the dish on top of rice. I had veg broth so I used it instead of chix broth. Omitted the salt, but used some herbs and spices in its place. Used cooked dry beans instead of cannd.
