Served this at our Bible class last night. Served it with baked tortilla chips. It was a big hit everyone wanted the recipe. Thanks for sharing.

I added 1/2 a cup of bulgur and used black quinoa. Didn't have beans, but I had a yellow, red, and orange peppers that made it very colorful and pretty! Definitely going to make this again.
