Am I the only person that does not see "lima beans" in the recipe?

I love this layered dip - Great for pot lucks, I just get the green, red, yellow & oragnge bell peppers and cut them into a dipping size slice and put them around the edge of the serving bowl, and everyone loves it. even people who do not like lima beans like it! I served it for a christmas dinner and it was a hit. I will make it again

Excellent Dip. My husband and I loathe lima beans, not sure why I even bothered. But I'm so glad I did, we both loved it with crackers (triscuits). I did add a little more garlic, salt, and pepper than suggested. I'd like to try it with a touch of dill as well. 2 thumbs up

I love lima beans and when I saw this recipe, I thought it was a great southern twist to a Mexican layered dip. I made this for a bridal shower and was very diaappointed in the bland flavor. If I make this again, which is doubtful, I will add more garlic and lime and top with a spicy salas.
