This recipe is perfection! We found our version to need much more water than original recommended. Feel free to try different types of beans and peppers.

Ohhhh the maple syrup sounds dee-lish!
I have a similar recipe that I use couscous. Big "DUH" on my part to not think to use quinoa. This one I'm trying!
Soooooo happy to see you still here!!!
