Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    Freeze the remaining tomato soup in a resealable plastic bag for the next time you want to make these beans or make a double batch for a big party.
  • tip 2
    Any dried beans can be substituted for the dried lima beans such as navy beans or great northern beans.
