Santa Fe Beans and Corn

 I found a package  of Bean Cuisine Soup Mix, behind some cans, on a shelf in my storage cabinet.  Since they do not make this anymore, I have had it for a few years.  Since it was dried beans and seasoning, I figured it was all right to use.

I am, in the habit, of throwing out anything that has been around for a while while hubby moans and groans.  I am afraid to take chances with our health.  This did not appear to pose a threat so I bravely carried on.  I decided not to make soup but a bean dish.

  1. I'm with your husband - I hate throwing out food that's probably good.
