Adapted from La Parilla, these vegan beans are the hit of any party. They're made in the oven which is convenient when you're doing a large mexican spread because I'm often using all four burners on my stove.

I really liked these but hubby not as much. There was a beer aftertaste which was probably why. We are wimpy when it comes to spice so I omitted the chile altogether. I used a dark Irish beer. ETA tried it again with hard apple cider and some mild chiles. It was a hit!
