Chicken broth is NOT vegetarian, so if you're cooking for a vegetarian, make sure you're using vegetable broth.
WONDERFUL! I made this as directed and didn't miss the bacon at all! This was very flavorful and full of fiber. I enjoyed it by itself and wrapped in whole grain tortillas with a little bit of low fat cheese and salsa. YUM! Freddy Cat says hi to his Auntie Mickey! Made for Recipe Swap #14, thanks for inviting us!
Yumm, this turned out super. I added some red chili flakes as well, just 'cause we like spicy foods. This did take some time to make, but most of it is passive cooking. Worked out well to have the pot stewing away while I cleaned the house on a Sunday afternoon. The flavors are delicious. I froze half of the beans and look forward to eating them soon. Thanks for posting this recipe, we enjoyed it quite a bit.
