If one family member likes the beans and the other doesn’t, just use 1 can in half of the mixture and leave the other half without.
Freeze the finished dish in a microwave-safe glass or plastic container. Then you’ll be able to quickly thaw and heat directly in the microwave. Inexpensive microwave-safe plastic containers are available in most discount and grocery stores. The large rectangles that hold 9 1/2 cups are perfect for this recipe.
