I enjoyed this recipe a lot though I did make a few alterations. I added a splash of olive oil to the recipe, I replaced the bacon with diced fresh jalapeno peppers, and I replaced the canned beans with fresh beans.

This was good, but it is missing something. I doubled the bacon, but still felt it needed something else. Maybe some hot sauce or Cajun seasoning. However, it is very easy and I plan to experiment with this recipe. (Also, directions don't say where to add onions. I sauteed them in bacon grease for a few minutes before adding potato.)
