I took 2 completely different recipes from 2
different generations & mixed them together,
omitted some other ingredients & came up with this.
I wanted something that would be especially
nutritious for my family. Great on a cold evening.
My daughter let me know in past weeks how
much she loves black beans, & how good they
are for you sooo I wanted black beans, kidney
beans, & veggies in it plus some lean gr. beef..
but not too spicy.. This is what I came
Hope you enjoy this as I much as I had coming
