OMG this was so good! I used 3 cans of rinsed black beans, a white and a yellow onion, one regular and one sweet potato. I don't remember how much of the crushed red pepper and cayenne I used, I didn't use all of it that the recipe called for since I'm feeding it to the kids. But Man! Yummy!! Thanks for a great recipe. =]

It was just OK, none of my vegetarian friends cared much for it. It was a little better the next day ater the flavors blended. I won't make it again
