      This was really cool. I had cooked my beans a couple of days ago and was looking for a nice way to serve them. This fit the bill. I substituted a tablespoon of chili powder and a couple teaspoons of Adobo powder for the chipotle, because I didn't have any. And I served it topped with grated cheddar cheese and sliced green onions. Even my 8 y.o. old liked it, "really tasty, Mom."
