I confess I happened into this simple recipe by trial and it was not an error! Great strategy for leftover meat. Patients ask me for fast, healthy, cheap, simple meals and this lands it on all counts! These beans are available on Amazon, or on santafebean.com or in HEB stores in Texas on the canned bean aisle.
