This is very easy! I used olive oil in place of the butter. This is a great basic recipe that can be kicked up easily with cumin, peppers, cilantro, corn....... I served this over Recipe #164687

Delicious! Simple! Thank you! {grins} I used some leftover bacon grease, which gave the beans a smoky flavor that just made them all the better.
