    2 cups Kidney Beans
    4 cups Red Beans

    I added in some red pepper to make it even more spicy, plus a can of corn because I enjoy corn, and I put it in the crockpot. It's delicious! - 3/13/07

    WOW. This is great~
    I added Navy beans instead of lentils and only 2 cups of red.
    Then I used a pkg. of firm tofu, tomato sauce, and a bag of Morningstar Farms Griller's Crumbles with Cayenne pepper for some added texture and taste.

    Now this is the way to cook! The peppers came from the freezer, and before that came from my garden. No tomatoes left, though. I'll have to grow more next year. Fantastic recipe. - 12/24/07

  • I do something similar as well but I use Kidney, Lima, Black, White and Garbanzo beans usually along with our home canned tomatoes. I like to add in some chopped onion and minced garlic and use a veggie or beef stock for a base. I never thought of bell peppers though, I'll try them next time :) - 4/20/12
