My middle son, my oldest twin and self proclaimed vegetarian (although will eat chicken strips and an occasion cheese burger) loves spicy food. Anything with beans, chilies and a bite is just fine with him. He even eats onions like potato chips, honest! This recipe was thrown together for him..a little on the mild side tonight after eating raw onions by the handful! He must have approved as he gobbled up two bowls. Made in the microwave, this was a one dish supper. You can easily cook this on the stove, in the oven or a big pot in the crock pot. My advice...at least double the recipe. You will be glad you did.
