    Wondered about the bread as a thickener, but it wored well, I used a wholemeal bread.  -  21 Jan 2010  (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)


    Used different ingredients. We had no green or yellow beans so used red beans in mexican sauce, used can mexican tomoatoes. Worked well.  -  21 Jan 2010  (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)
