Something I picked up next to Gramma. It's got a hint of mexican to it, but it isn't really anything authentic mexican. Its the cheapest, easiest stuff around to make though, healthy as all get out, fills you up - hard to beat. Especially when it gets cooler out... I ran out of white beans when I made this batch, but you still get the idea from the picture.
