This looks good! I'm going to make this tonight, if I have all the ingredients!

Kevinpa- Do you slice the zucchini in thins, across? Or do I cut the zucchini longways, then into think slices? I didnt see any larger round pieces, so I just want to make sure I do it right, if I make it, tonight. (It's hard to tell for sure, in the pic)

It was like a cross between pork n beans and chilli.

I made this tonight, as a side dish with the mexican pork chops. It was yummy! Thanks, Kevinpa!

I just wanted to mention that this is very versatile for leftovers. I had some of the leftovers scopped onto the top of a salad, for lunch, and made a taco salad type thing with some sour cream and hot sauce.

DH put it in a LC tortilla with cheese, sour cream, lettuce and made himself a wrap

I bet it would make a good omellete filling, also.

Pork N Beans
Made this for first time and all members of family absolutely loved it. DS was even using like Sloppy Joes. Only thing I did differently was subbing another zuchini for the celery cause I had no celery. Thanks Kevin.

Very much so. Make sure you rinse them off completely though.

Cool. Thanks Again Kevin! I have seen them at our local farm market /health food store but never bought them.

Thanks Kevin, I have a can of those black soy beans that I've been meaning to try. This looks great. :)

These beans are wonderful. I didn't use the ground pork or turkey bacon because I didn't have that in the house, but I did use some Canadian bacon cubed in small pieces and also added 1/2 teaspoon sweet paprika. Tonight, DH and I will have them with grilled ribs. The weather is still good here at the moment and I want to take advantage of grilling weather. Thank you Kevin for this recipe. You're a genius in the kitchen.

Looks good.

I'll switch the beans and use brown sugar Splenda. I love dark red kidney beans.
(Even though I like many soy products the black beans aren't one of them.)
