Lima bean skillet meal is a recipe you will love because you can use frozen or fresh vegetables in this dish.  It is wonderful for using garden vegetables in summer and you can use frozen vegetables in winter.  You could double the recipe or cut it in half to meet you needs.  You can freeze it or keep it in the refrigerator for several days to be reheated.  Serve it over rice or pasta or just serve it alone.  Lima bean skillet meal goes great with my recipe for Southern cornbread muffins or our recipe for fried hoecakes.  You could add just about any other garden vegetable you like to this recipe like zucchini, too.

This Lima bean skillet meal will quickly become a favorite recipe.
