I used black beans in this chicken pot pie recipe even though Dave is not really into them as they change the colour of the food.
Debbi, our new hostess for The Secret Recipe Club is on the ball, and sent out our assignments the weekend after our reveal. This month I am getting to know Sara who blogs over at Cook With Sara. Sara cooks with everyday ingredients which means we are very similar in our approach to our kitchens. I browsed through Sara’s recipe index before deciding to make an adaptation of her Southwestern Potpie as I have black beans that I need to make use of more often. Dave is not really into my black beans as they change the colour of the food but he will just have to get used to that as I sill have quite a lot of them left. I adapted the recipe only because I had leftover buttermilk pastry that I wanted to use up. This was a very moreish recipe and we took the leftovers to work for lunch the next day.
