These were creamy with a burst of flavor from the sun-dried tomatoes. Great healthy side dish, high in protein.

I used this recipe as a wonderful guideline for the dish I made. I didn't have 4 cans of beans so I made my own using 1 pound of cooked beans. I added the listed veggies and seasonings, but increased the vegetables by adding 1 medium onion, 1 cup bell (tri-color) pepper, 2 ribs celery, one jalapeno, and 1 small zucchini. I used frozen chopped spinach. I also increased the chili powder and cumin. Delicious! Laugh if you want...I'm serving it with grilled kielbasa!!!

This was tasty and seemed to be a hit at the potluck I took it to. I cooked it overnight and I think it sat on Warm for a little too long and the beans got slightly mushy. I will try it again without cooking for so long and see if I adjust my review.
