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.

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.

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.
