      This one was a hit with my 4 kids which is rare! I did not use dry pinto beans but added a large (28oz) can after I thawed it. Thanks for posting this TIsh!

      We also found this to be rather bland. This worked for most of the Families in my meal swap that have little kids though. As for our family we prefered it with more Green Chilis and Flour Tortillas and Cheese (served as burritos).

      I've had this recipe for years, and I think it's a great cool night dinner. The flavors might be a bit bland for some--I add a little extra cumin, another jar of green chilies, and a couple drops of hot sauce to spice it up though. I also serve it wrapped in flour tortillas, with melted cheese, chopped tomatoes and shredded lettuce, in addition to the sour cream. Could also serve with yellow rice if extra hungry :)
