If you want to make this dish vegetarian, use soy sauce instead of Worcestershire. I like it warm or cold. —Becky Cuba, Spotsylvania, Virginia

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jun. 14, 2015

"Yummy and very easy to make. A quick, weeknight meal. It's not very hearty so it definitely does not make four large servings. The second time we made this, I doubled the recipe and served with couscous. That helped round out the meal."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed May. 25, 2015

"This dish was really good and not spicy at all. My only complaint was no meat, so I just added some cut up chicken breast. I really love this dish cold, but its great either way."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jun. 10, 2014

"This was good. Spicy and flavorful. I wouldn't have minded a few more beans because I like the beans, but a whole nother can would've been too much. I did use about half the spinach called for, just because that is all I had on hand."
