I wouldn’t recommend you eat this dish if you are meeting someone for the first time. Beans are notorious for causing gas. With your family though? Who cares! Eat up and enjoy 🙂

I used canned kidney beans in this recipe. I like the convenience and I read somewhere before that a raw kidney bean can kill you. They need to be cooked properly which the canned kidney beans are already. 

My favorite bean is the kidney beans. My first pick is the white kidney bean with the red kidney bean coming in a close second. I always put them in my chili. Do you?
