Top Review by stimied

Opinions are split here in the stimied household. I did not care for this at all, the bean flavor was too prevalent. However, the rest of my household says that this is wonderful and I should make it again, perhaps adding something crunchy like sunflower seeds so that it will have more of the texture of pecan pie. I would make this again at their request, but not for my personal consumption.
