Made this to go with tacos and was really nice. Couldn't get ou to beans so did it with butter beans which worked well

These are delicious as the main part of a veggie fajita - we serve this amount between two with the usual accompaniments. Makes a nice change from the usual peppers and onion combo.

A very good recipe! I made this last night, and enjoyed it with some large rice crackers, tasty! In your face Heinz!

I love these as part of a Tex-Mex meal. I make them just as written except that I change the types of beans. My favourite so far has been butter beans.
