This is so easy to make. I took a few liberties with this recipe, but nothing major. I used canned beans instead of dried -- 2 cans for a 1/2 recipe. I also had to improvise with the salsa because I couldn't get any basil this time of year. Instead, I used a basil-flavoured olive oil to make a type of pesto, mixing it with the other ingredients for just a couple seconds in the food processor. Thanks for a quick recipe that warmed us up on a chilly winter day. If you don't like spicy things, this recipe has lots of flavour so I'm sure you could leave the chilli flakes out.
