I've made this a couple of times as a side for a Mexican style dinner. I like it using red bell pepper. Nice alternative to refritos and less fat.

This was a perfect side to go with our fajitas. I used a bit more salsa and a mix of dried chipotle and Mexican seasoning. I was worried that this would turn out dry so I covered tightly with foil, but it worked out great. We often need an easy bean side dish and this fits the bill. Thanks for posting.

Loved this recipe!! I'm not a big fan of beans, but this was delicious. Perfect for BBQ.
