I cut this down substantially to serve 4, but it still turned out wonderfully. Of course, now I have to find a use for all those leftover canned beans! Probably another repeat of this is delicious! I subbed pintos for the kidney beans, just a personal preference. I don't really like kidney beans. The smell while this is cooking drove everyone crazy, so its no wonder they just dug in! Thanks for sharing a yummy recipe.

This recipe is awesome! I used it today at a church BBQ to feed 100 people and it received great reviews.
