I'd take this version rather than the boxed stuff anyday! I added shredded cheddar and chopped garlic, but left off the onions since I don't care for them. I also didn't drain my beans, but used the juice and added it into the blender. I think some chopped carrots and peas would be a great addition the next time I make this! Thanks for posting.
