  1. Everyone loved this recipe. I made exactly as written except I topped the beans with green bell pepper rings for more color. Will make this over and over again. Thanks for sharing it, Chef Tanyaw.


I'm a stay at home mom with 4 children. I love discovering great recipes and cooking techniques. Since my 4 children have recently gotten out of the preschool years, I have taken more time to catalog and organize my recipe collection. I appreciate all the wonderful recipes I have found here and the effort to input them. My family and I appreciate the good food that has become part of what we regularly enjoy eating. Besides cooking and taking care of my children and family, I love reading and playing piano. I also love classical guitar, and as my kids grow older, I would like to devote time to learning to play better (I'm really just a beginner). The arts bring me a lot of joy (music, visual, performance, literary, culinary). I also find joy in the beauty that is in the world and nature... I'm fortunate to live close to the beautiful Wasatch Mountains and not too far from many beautiful national parks in the state of Utah. I feel we have a responsibility to reach out and help others, and as a follower of Jesus Christ, I hope to make a positive contribution to my family, local church congregation, neighborhood, community, and to worthy causes that inspire me. I find that many charitable organizations are not giving enough to help the less fortunate or to whatever is their cuase, but I really like The Smile Train, and the programs of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints which are mostly run by volunteers (main humanitarian missions... eyeglasses, clean water , Neonatal Resuscitation, Emergency Response, Wheelchairs, Food Production, and Immunizations). I am very thankful for a good and abundant life and am sad for the great suffering that many people endure in life. I believe in an Eternal equalization or fixing of injustice, and I look forward to the day God will surely make everything right.
