Doubled this up and served with jacket potatoes and a side salad and we really enjoyed it as a mid week dinner. Forgot the lemon, but still nice. Will cook again and try with the lemon/lime.

We used dried turtle beans - same as black beans - soaked them the night before and cooked them before we started.
