“I found this recipe on the Idaho Bean Commission web site, and it's a keeper. Next time I'll add some corn, but otherwise this is really tasty and you won't miss the meat. I didn't use cooking spray or the oven--just cooked on the stove in a little butter. I skipped the sour cream because I didn't think it needed it.”
