"Very good and feeling. I changed a few things I dont care for kidney beans so used 3/4 cups of pinto and black beans. I make my own so can control salt. Used no salt added tomatoes. Also did have turkey sausage so used chicken sausage with habanero with monterey jack.(one link has 520 sodium and 8 grams of fat. Next time will try it with the turkey."
