Well, this was a quick one thrown together last night, using the beans that are nearly always present in my fridge, we do enjoy beans! I didn't have pecans though, so I used cashews, which we love.... so it was probably a slightly different taste, but in essence, the same dish! Very nice, DD1 carefully put all her nuts to one side, I thought, oh, she doesn't like them... no, she was saving the best for last :lol: Thanks for a lovely recipe, hollyfrolly!
