Garlicky Red Beans & Pork

Submitted by: MOMOFCHANCE

Introduction

This can be spicy, sometimes I substitute canned tomatoes with green chiles which makes it spicier, just have to watch the sodium. This is from the Weight Watchers New Complete Cookbook. One of our favorites here. You can add more beans, more veggies. It's a very versatile recipe. To save time you can substitue canned beans for dried. Adjust simmering time to 15-20 mins, just long enough to blend the flavors.

  • Very good! I used canned beans and tomatoes. Easy to fix. This would also be good with ground beef or ground turkey. - 8/12/08
