It was good. You can make this a skillet dish by cooking the onions first and then changing the limas and other veggies to canned varieties.

Warm and hearty on a cold winter night. I omitted the lima beans and used frozen mixed veggies instead of green beans. Served with cornbread...wish I had some potatoes too but was all out.

My family loved this recipe and my 2 year old actually ate the veggies, that never happens lol. But i just used a large bag of frozen mixed veggies and cut down the sugar and ketchup, and we ate...

This is a very good recipe. I would reduce the sugar to know more a 1/4 cup. I also added a little bell pepper and garlic. But all in all the recipe can stand on it's own.
