Mexican is one of our favorite cuisines and I made these to go along with a Mexican themed dinner I was having. Everyone really enjoyed these beans! Just the right amount of everything for us. We will enjoy these with lots of dinners in the future! Thanks for sharing Fluffster!

Made these to go with ribs I was having tonight. I cut back to 1 tsp. cilantro as I'm not crazy about it in many things, and it was great! Thanks Fluff for a simple and delicious bean dish that only takes a few mins. to prepare. This will be great with a lot of meals at my house! Linda
