      Great fall recipe, hearty and delicious! I made a few changes..Bourbon instead of wine and Goya butterbeans from the can (cuts time in half just add less veggie stock and careful stirring the beans)...Also I added baby yellow, orange and red peppers for color and to add sweetness. Went great with the side of collard greens! I highly recommend this dish! thx chef!
