      I made this last week. It was fabulous! I had some pink beans, so I cooked them. I had ham in the freezer as well as cooked rice. My hubby was a hard sell, as he thinks it should be beans OR rice. He has since changed his mind! He loved it and that made 2 of us! Thanks Nif for another winner!
