MY REVIEW

FANTASTIC recipe!! I do not use lima beans in mine...no one in my family likes them. In place of that, I used an extra can of chili beans. My kids even loved it. I used regular chili beans but still added the red pepper flakes. It was not enough to make it to hot for the kids. We will certainly be making this again for sure. Thanks for sharing.

Excellent recipe. Very mild and a bit sweet which was nice for a change. I followed the recipe exactly. Will leave out the lima beans when I make it again. I didn't like the taste and texture of them as a kid and I guess I still don't.
