“A friend of mine made this recently and it was YUMMY. Apparently, you eat it twice a day and lose weight, but I just thought it was good. Really good. To make it vegetarian sub out the ground beef with another can of beans or black beans. Yummy and perfect for any time of the year. It's light, yet warm and comforting. It's a VERY forgiving recipe, so change it up as you wish. I've added kale or spinach too it with very good results as well.”
