I forgot to buy the green chilies so I just made it without them. It was still very tasty. I did find it a bit salty so I suggest rinsing the beans as well as draining them. If your broth is store bought, you may want to sub water for part of the broth as well.

I loved how quickly this came together. It’s perfect for a busy night.

It’s a yummy THM(E) or energizing meal as well as a real food meal.
