Friends will not believe what the main ingredient of this pie is! The pinto beans make a great substitute and it is still a tasty pie.—Marilou Robinson, Portland, Oregon

"I loved this recipe. I actually think it is better than real pecan pie. To make it look prettier I added a layer of halved pecans on the top."
