This was pretty good. I made a few changes, but nothing major. I used black beans instead of kidney because no one here likes kidney beans. I added about a tablespoon of chopped cilantro and a clove of chopped garlic to the pot (probably should have added more garlic since I really couldn't taste it). It was very good, but I was hoping it would be a little more "soupy". I think next time adding more spaghetti sauce will do it. The taste was right on though. I'll definitely make this one again.
