One basic can of beans is the short cut you need to get this on the table fast. From Good Food Magazine September 1988

- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
- 1⁄4 teaspoon fresh ground pepper

It would taste so good without all the heat. I will probably make a very similar variation of this again without so much jalepeno and ceyenne.
This was very good! I made 3 slight changes - small not large onion, half the cayenne, and parsley not cilantro. I made this for company and we all really enjoyed it with some flat breads to mop up the juices. I did forget the sour cream but it wasn't really missed. Thanks for the recipe Jackie!
This is very good! With just the right amount of spice. It is a bit onion-heavy, which if you love onions, like I do, is fine. But I'd understand if some people may want to cut back a bit on the onions. I've made this several times now and it's delicious every time.
