This recipe is easy, delicious, and nutritious, Member wolter61

This recipe has become a family favorite. It's easy to throw together and a great way to include fiber in your family's diet. I cannot detect either the lima beans or butter beans (I usually gag to eat them by themselves), so this is a great way for me to eat those veggies. I also use ground turkey (or mix beef & turkey), olive oil instead of veg oil and I usually double the recipe because this freezes well. Whip up a batch of Jiffy mix corn muffins and you're good to go.
