How many cans of beans would you use to make vegetarian?
HI! Does this recipe use I can of tomatoes? Or 2 14.8 ounce cans. Thanks. Love your recipes!
I used 28oz, but I don't see why 2 smaller cans wouldn't work. 🙂
Hi! This recipe is very good. I have also used beef roast as well. That is very good as well. I enjoy the beef a little bit better. Served over mashed cauliflower. LOVE it.

Can this be frozen?
Though I've never frozen it, I believe it would be fine. ~Martha
Hi. Thanks for inspiration 🙂
We loved it...it was easy and very tasty. Leftovers were turned into Brunswick Stew with the addition of a sliced potato, some corn and some green beans. Will definitely make it again.
Very good. I added corn and black beans
