    This is an incredibly delicious and satisfying recipe. It can be easily tinkered with and still maintain its integrity. I've been known to add chopped mushrooms, and red or green peppers. 2 cans of canned beans are a time-saving substitute. I usually cut the recipe in half because it makes a lot. - 11/9/11
