"Perfect recipe for those who enjoy eating delicious food more than preparing it! Letting the frozen vegetables thaw instead of cooking them cuts down on the prep time and helps keep them crisp. Feel free to mix and match with different types of beans; I've also used garbanzo beans, white beans, black-eyed peas, and kidney beans in this recipe."

I thought this was good and it was even better the next day. Only change I made was cutting the red peppers and onions in half and I used red onion diced small. Next time I would just cut back t...
