I don't know if I am the only one out there, but I just love beans. All kinds of beans. Black, Kidney, Pinto, even garbanzo. I especially love them in dips and soups. I am probably the only one in this house that would be so content to just eat vegetables and beans. That is why I make a lot of different bean dips and soups. While I am busy serving everyone else their large meat dinners, you will find me in the corner, happy as a clam with my beans and veggies. This is definately not my healthiest recipe. It is a great comfort food recipe. Packed with protein and fat, just like I like it!
