    Made with all ingredients and thought it was delish. The spicy peppers and sweetness of the coconut really make this a nice dish. made for ZWT africa, representing the Shady Ladies.

    I opted to use the sweet bean recipe with coconut milk and I doubled the recipe, however I wound up adding brown sugar to the beans after tasting it. Next time I may try the savory rendition. Made for Spring 2009 Photo Tag.
