Yummmmmmy! I scaled this recipe down to 1 serving without difficulty, and didn't change a thing! The butter-tomato-bean comibination is simply out of this world, and the salsa makes it that extra special. I had this with chappatis for a great dinner. Thanks Inez!

My husband LOVED these. I didn't have salsa so I used a little Rotel Tomatoes. I will definately put this as a regular on our menus. Thanks!
