"This bean stew is a staple for my co-workers and me once the weather turns cool," says Debbie Matthews of Bluefield, West Virginia. "Although this is a low-fat dish, it definitely doesn't taste like it!"

"Great flavor. I chopped up some cooked chicken breast and added that. This recipe is a keeper for sure."

"One of my favorite winter recipes. I add sausage or ground turkey to make it a little more hearty and serve it over brown rice."
