I can't remember were I originally got this recipe, but it has been a favorite around here for a long time. The flavours blend very well together and it is very filling.

I liked the sweet pineapple in this bean dish and preferred a bit more cayenne. I wanted more sauce and found coconut milk to be an excellent addition.

This is a great recipe! I actually found it on another site and was going to add it here - but found it's already here. I made it exactly according to the recipe and wouldn't change a thing. Delicious and very very healthy.

Awesome! Instead of fresh tomatoes I used a can of diced tomatoes. My husband doesn't like chickpeas so I used a blend of pinto, kidney, and black beans instead. It was so delicious! It made great left-overs too! Great recipe!
