  • ¼ tsp Mrs. Dash Extra Spicy seasoning
  • 12 - 16 oz frozen baby lima beans (small or medium bag)

  • Add remaining ingredients and stir. Cover the pot and bring it to a boil. Reduce the heat to a simmer.
  • Cook for 30 minutes, stirring every 5 - 10 minutes. If needed, add water or more broth. You do not need a lot of liquid, but you don't want them to burn. So, add ONLY if necessary.
