This one sounds like one hubby and I will like. I will get back to you when we try it. We are fond of beans, and high fiber is supposed to help prevent diabetes. Beans are an economical source of protein. Thsnks for posting.

You could not have posted these at a better time. I will be using this one for tomorrow lunch. I think a dollop of sour cream would be good with this.
