    This got really mixed reviews at my house. My son who loves lima beans wouldn't take more than one bite and I didn't like it much either. My husband loved it. I just felt that the sauce lacked flavor. The chili powder really did nothing for me. I think I would have liked it better had it been a butter sauce. Of course more cheese can fix just about anything but I really didn't want to go that route.

    I'm a big lima bean fan, but usually prepare them very simply -- just some butter and that's about it so I was looking forward to trying this recipe, and it was a hit. The type of bell pepper (green or red) wasn't specified, so I went with red for a contrasting color. I really enjoyed the onion, pepper, and olives with the lima beans. Just the right amount of chili powder and not too much cheese. A great side dish for anyone who enjoys lima beans.
