This recipe came about out of desperation. I had not gone to the store for groceries so had to quickly make do with what I found in the freezer and dry goods cupboard. It turned out exceptionally well, and I have made it over and over again for a quick fast yummy dinner. Since we also like things a little spicy, sometimes I add a small can chopped green chiles. I usually serve some corn bread on the side with this as well * Note - first time I made this I used canned pinto beans and added about 1 Tbsp chili powder- but found I like the canned chili beans as it is all together in one can)
