This was a fabulous recipe. So quick and easy to make. I didn't have green peppers so I used red bell pepper instead and it was delicious!!!

This was really easy and tolerated a fair amount of neglect. I don't remember adding the thyme, so I probably forgot, but I would add it next time. Very good. Even people who usually complain about beans as a side dish gobbled it up.
