This was very nice. Bird is not a big 'bean' eater yet still enjoyed it. I, (Buddha), love em. The kids thought it was really good too. good pizza flavor for beans they said. Thanks Chef Romie. Made for PAC 2007

We liked this recipe. We used pre-cooked beans (cooked them overnight in the slow-cooker). We tried this recipe in keeping with our new goal to eat less meat, and it worked great because here we had the taste of the sausage, but it was bulked up with high-fiber, healthy (cheap!) beans. We had it over rice.

Everyone loved this recipe. I used regular dried pinto beans and soaked them overnight before cooking.
