Recipe Spicy Peruvian Succotash  

Although typically made with fresh (green) lima beans, succotash is equally delicious with these dried Peruvian Lima Beans. Bacon and sauteed onion lend it richness and depth, while fresh corn, sherry vinegar, tomatoes and herbs hit the sweet, fresh and tangy notes. Serve with grilled chicken or fish.
