    I made this for a potluck and it was devoured. Several people asked for the recipe. It was one of those... "what do I have on hand" dishes. It has lots of flavor and I will definitely make this again. Good comfort food.

      Sorry, this was nothing less than terrible in my hands. I used beans that i had previously cooked, then froze, but otherwise everything was the same.

      Great! I used ground turkey instead of pork. I did precook the beans in salted water for about 45 minutes covered,then added everything in the recipe. I love using black coffee in recipes. I also used two cans of diced tomatoes in juice instead of the tomato sauce and large tomato. The next day the flavor is even better after refrigeration. I think that you could use any kind of meat especially wild meat for this dish! I will make again, this time with wild game or buffalo. Thanks.
