I made a recipe similar to this the other day. I substituted chicken for ground turkey breast and it was delicious. It was a good way for me to eat my lean meats other than Thanksgiving.
So you just soaked beans for 6 hours in water ....in a bowl?

I've been making a variation of this for about 5 years.
I make mine in a crock-pot and let it simmer for a few hours.
The leftovers never last more than 4 days!
