I got this recipe from one of my Better Homes & Garden cook books. My family loved it the first time I made it. I just estimated the prep time. Try it.

I must admit, I skipped the whole dry bean soaking,cooking, and used canned beans(kidney). I halved the recipe and loved the way it turned out, thanks!
