This was very good! I did have to make a few changes. I put the beans and all into a pot to cook, then discovered I had to leave suddenly. So I put it all into a crockpot and cooked it about 8 hours. Yum! Thank you for a lovely meal. I served this with Cheese Spinach Quesadillas and The Best Guacamole.
