Recipe by itscolleen

I made this for a potluck and it was devoured. Several people asked for the recipe. It was one of those... "what do I have on hand" dishes. It has lots of flavor and I will definitely make this again. Good comfort food.

Sorry, this was nothing less than terrible in my hands. I used beans that i had previously cooked, then froze, but otherwise everything was the same.
