    My family loves this!

    This is a great comfort food recipe. I used chick peas & black beans reduced sodium instead of the beans it called for. It would also be good made with pork or chicken. Will be adding this to my supper time staples.

    This has become one of my favorite dishes. Super easy and absolutely delicious. I pair it with cole slaw and a hearty bread. Serious comfort food on a cold, rainy day.
