This is really good. I just saw this recipe mentioned in a thread tonight and lo & behold I had all the ingredients. OK - I didn't have enough goat cheese but what I did have with the goat cheese I preferred over the jack cheese used to finish the dinner. The beans are awesome alone - the lime juice really gives it a kick. Thanks for a great recipe!
