About this recipe: This is a fabulous chard dish, which is packed full of flavours and textures. Sauteed Swiss chard is baked with pinto beans, tomato and goats cheese. Serve as a main or side dish.
If you can't get your hands on Swiss chard, use spinach instead.
What an interesting recipe! I used fire roasted canned tomatoes instead of fresh and added half a diced onion. For some reason I really wanted jalepenos in this dish so I added 1/2 of a seeded jalepeno, diced. I served this over white jasmine rice with sliced avocado. The avocado was so delicious..the cool rich taste blended so smoothly with the acidic tomatoes and slightly bitter swiss chard. I'd like to try this with mixed beans and fresh mozzarella cheese too. Definitely try this one..It's an unusual but very yummy recipe! - 19 Sep 2008 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
This recipe was amazing. I followed and earlier suggestion and used black bean instead and loved it! I also omitted the butter just because it felt unnecessary and it didn't seem to affect the flavor at all! It's savory, rich, but not heavy, and the lime adds a great tangy finish. - 30 Jun 2008 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
This tastes wonderful but the recipe calls for one bunch of chard and you actually need two bunches of chard. There are more pinto beans than anything in this recipe. Try two bunches to even out the flavors and a whole package of goat cheese, not just 3 tbsp. - 09 Feb 2009 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
